When God shuts a door…

You know, I was discussing my recent not-getting-hired by a certain school with my wife this evening.  She brought up the point that “if we hadn’t heard about the job opening, we wouldn’t have felt let down when you didn’t get it–so what good did it do you to apply?”

I thought about this, and told her that it was the most concrete sign from God that I have been given so far that my discontentment with my job last year was NOT an immediate sign that I need to leave.  “He’s not done with me at L****** just yet,” I said.

So, be it for one more year, or the rest of my life, I’m back at LHS.  The difference will be up to me to make: do I take up the challenge that God has laid at my feet, and excel for his sake?

Time will tell.

Slump…

I’m in one.

I don’t know.  Maybe it’s just nagging health issues in the family.  Maybe it’s low morale here at work.  Maybe I just need more exercise.  Whatever it is, I can feel it dragging me down.

For the first time that I can remember, work just isn’t… fun.  That frightens me a little bit.  It seems like the paperwork and the bureaucratic nonsense, as well as the uncertainty of funds and last year’s low TAKS scores, has just drained all the joy out of the profession.

Maybe I just need an enema.  Maybe it’s Maybelline.

This is certain: something has to changeAnd soon.
