Roller Coasters

I used to like roller coasters. Really. But lately if feels like I've been on one far too long and I'm ready to get off.

I don't mind the highs and lows of life. Just like the grandmother on Parenthood (the movie version) said. It's what makes life interesting and exciting, unlike the merry-go-round which just goes round and round. (And it is interesting to note that the merry-go-round will make me sick, while the roller coaster just scares me.)

Anyway, I was talking about the highs and lows of life... I like them to be spread out a bit, but for the past few weeks, I feel like we are up, down, up, down, up down. I'm not only getting sick, but a little case of whiplash too.

My dear husband has entered the job market. Enough said... but let's say more.

"I've got a job you'd be perfect for -- but they went a different way with it"

We find a job online tailor made for Jim -- but no one responds to his resume.

We spend money we don't have to get certified for a job that apparently we might not have either.

I'm trying to help as well, but my resume distribution isn't fairing any better than Jim's.

I've been told that one company likes my writing and may even consider using me for some video production, but until I hear from them, I'm not getting my hopes up.

I really don't like it when they come crashing down.

I really do know God is in control and He is closing all the wrong doors and there is a door that will be open that no man can shut. But our knuckles are getting bruised and bloody from knocking on every door we can find. Lord, please lead us to your door quickly.

I'm pretty sure that your door is where the are finally able to disembark this roller coaster!
