I shall find rest

I have an annoucement to make, I tendered my resignation this morning after working only 2 months + in the new company. This is not an easy decision especially in this economy downturn and I know I will see a lot of raised eye brows because of this decision.

Firstly I want to thank hubby for his understanding and untidying support these past weeks, we have gone through few sessions of discussions, hubby helped me in some soul searching sessions, he helped me in evaluating things and to see things in a more neutral and realistic angle. Most importantly he assured me of his support. No doubt I struggled but God has given me the assurance that He will provide to all our needs, be it physical, emotional or spiritual.

This year I've gone through major events in life and the fact that I'm still who I am is through the grace of God. My mom passed away in February and I resigned twice within 4 months after working for 12+ years in the same company. None of my family members knew about it yet except hubby.

So what is my plan now? Firstly is to really have time-off for myself, time-off here simply means let my days go by without having to wake up by the alarm and no routine schedule, I simply want to rest in the Lord, be still in Him, spent quality time with my children and hubby. Catch up with some of my hobbies ... gardening, cooking, reading and knitting.

Of course the household income has reduced by half, we did some calculation and hubby gave the green light, with his blessings we are going to go through this time together. Will I be a full time SAHM, for the time being, yes, for how long? Let's see God's leading.

Tomorrow I will be having a discussion with a private college... if God is willing, I would like to be lecturing part time.

So with effect from 1st Jan 2009, I will not be holding a full time job for the first time.

"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all the rest shall be added unto you". I'm learning to walk in faith.....

Har?? What a shocking news to me! Well, I guess financially is not a problem for your family. Take a good rest first, then figure out what to do later. Ok?

Ling, yeah this is exactly what I want to do, thanks and who knows I may end up being a SAHM...

Little inbox, shocking eh? Financially will be a bit tight but no regrets, afterall I'm sure nobody will say that they should have spent more time at work rather spend more time at home... I don't want to miss my time with the girls especially when they are growing fast... by the way I'm planning to shed some of my extra pounds too...

Dorene, thanks for everything, I really appreciate your help, I will need to go through a mock lecture with the principal next week.. pray for me ya!
