He got it!

Wow.. I can't believe it has been over 10 days since I blogged. I've been really busy at work and our internet at home has been down.  I've been calling AT&T, but they can't seeem to get their act together and help me with my problem.   When I called last night, one guy told me that he was going to transfer me to the phone line department and demand that they send out a technician.  Well, I did, but she said they can't get someone out until Wednesday.  Grr....

So anyways, on to my big announcement.....

DEREK GOT A JOB!!!!!!!
Some of you may be thinking...'Wow... that's it?' Yes. That's it. Derek had been unemployed since July of last year.  Luckily we had moved in with my parents only two months before that so we had somewhere to stay, but we have been struggling in the area of finances ever since.

I've recently been blogging about my experiences with tithing. Well, since January when I started tithing, I haven't necessarily been able to pay every bill every month, but Derek has been able to find little side jobs here and there to help.  I've been tithing for about 3 months and in that time, Derek had applied for many jobs.

Finally, 2 weeks ago, he got a call about a job on a road crew.  He went for the interview. We waited a week for them to get the drug screens back. Of course, we knew those would be fine. 

Last week on Wednesday, Derek got the call that he was hired and they would be leaving on Saturday. Yes.... Derek left on the road Saturday morning.  He will be gone 3 weeks at a time and then home for a week.  You have no idea how much of a blessing this job is. Not because he won't be home, but because it was brining him down so much that he couldn't provide the way he wanted to.  Now he can.  He joked about being the one brining home the bacon now.

So that's my news and I owe it all to God for taking care of us.

Derek and I are Christians and we believe that all our money belongs to God. He only asks that we give him 10% and allows us to use the rest for living. Its in the Bible about giving 10% back to the Lord. I'll have to look up the verses and get back to you. Its a form or worship/ obedience to God.
