When Life Gets in the Way of Blogging: God Truly Is Good

Ever since I started my new job as Assistant Director of Admissions at Sierra Nevada College in February, I  have had a hard time focusing the necessary time on my New Year's Resolution posts.  I have missed more weeks this year in that resolution than I did in the four previous years combined, I'm sure - although I haven't taken the time to count, ironically.  Tonight is no exception, but for a different reason.

Our Director's last day was today,  and the last week has been a whirlwind of very long days trying to get ready for my new added responsibilities as Interim Director of Admissions, starting Monday.  I have been going over all kinds of things, frantically trying to get a handle on everything I will need to start doing next week.  I also have been trying to contact prospective students in Hawaii - which means, since they are four hours behind us in Nevada, that I have been arriving at the office each morning at about 7:00AM and finishing my phone calls each night at about 11:30PM.  Yes, I'm tired - and I have not spent the time I normally would thinking about the post I want to be writing instead of this one. 

Oh, well.  It is what it is, and I am grateful for this opportunity - one I never expected or could have anticipated so quickly.  I am thankful that I was inspired to find and apply for the position that brought me here, and I am thankful for the college's willingness to trust me with this new responsibility.  I will be grateful to Culver-Stockton for allowing me to get into college admissions, which I love, and I am grateful for Sierra Nevada College giving me the opportunity I wasn't going to get otherwise. 

So, I hope I will be able to be more consistent with my New Year's Resolution posts from now on - but with my new position and moving my family cross-country in two weeks . . . At the very least, I promise I will continue to prepare my regular daily posts and links throughout the week. 

Wish me luck!

God is good!

I am excited to be together again in just over 10 days - even though the week after that will be filled with the last minute stress of packing and moving.

This whole process is an amazing testament of God's love and awareness of our family - and an additional recognition that when we let go and trust Him, He can open doors and windows that we never would have thought to open (or find) on our own.

I love you, my dear!

Life does get in the way of writing about life, and that's the way it should be. I'm in the same boat. Glad good things have happened for you.

Good luck indeed!

As they say, life is what happens while you are making plans.... :D

A time and season for all things... guess it's winter for writing right now, but spring will come again! (I'm hoping that's true in my own case, too!!)
