Will Work for Food

Ha ha, just kidding...I'm not that broke yet! Actually, my blog today is to ask anyone who reads this to pray REALLY hard about a job possibility that I have. I interviewed last Friday for a position with Gables Residential. It's a huge company that owns apartments and condos all over the U.S. (my apartment being one of them). It sounds like the perfect job for me, and I would get to do a variety of things rather than being stuck behind a desk. I'd be showing apartments and setting up leases primarily, but there's some other stuff too. Anyway, I felt pretty good about my interview on Friday.

Then, the lady I interviewed with called me and set up a 2nd interview for today at 2:00. It was with a different person this time, so I was nervous... especially since it was a second interview. I found out that they asked 11 people to come back and interview, which is about half of what they started with. And, there will probably be a 3rd interview. Ugh!! So, I just got back and I feel pretty good about it. I'm kindof to the point where if I don't get the job, I'll know that I put my best foot forward, and it'll be okay. BUT, at the same time, it made me want the job even more. There's lots of potential to move around with this job, which is good for Ryan and me. We never know where we're going to be living next!

I have been praying so hard for the Lord to show me what he wants me to do. Lately, I've been content to look for an easy job just to fill up time and make some money while Ryan is in school. But, I feel like I have a degree and haven't really gotten to use it these past 4 years. This job opening fell into my lap out of the blue, and I know that I've been given the opportunity for a reason. It's not even a job I had ever thought about doing, and all of a sudden I feel so strongly that it's something I would enjoy. At this point, it's hard not to get my hopes up, but I know better than that. So, I'll keep you posted. Hopefully I'll hear something in the next couple of days.
