Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow....

....creeps in this petty pace from day to day
And all our yesterdays are lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
Out! Out! Five year career
A walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the timeclock
It is a tale, told by a burned-out employee
Full of sound and fury...
Signifying...the beginning of something new?

My interview is tomorrow (Thursday)at 3 pm...and the clock is moving so slowly. I will be leaving work early so as to go home, freshen up, change clothes, and hopefully spend a few minutes in Adoration before heading up to my destination.

I promise not to mis-quote Shakespeare to them, nor will I parody the Gospel of John.

And I will be praying to several Saints. And asking for the prayers of all YOU saints out there as well!

UPDATE: 5:55 am - Last night I had more bad dreams per capita than I've had in a long time. And I kept waking up to a sense of an evil, terrifying presence.

Thank you for your prayers, everyone!

The Lord bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you.

I am in the middle of a life changing career move interview process now and I've had one or two sleepless nights myself.

Being someone who has worked for the church (past tense) I want you to know that it can be wonderful and it can be heart wrenchingly difficult.

My prayers go with you. If you feel that this is God's will I hope that all goes well for you.

Thanks, onionboy and angelmeg.

Nothing can be worse than where I am...I am in a job that is the punishment for my earlier rebellion, and thus it is completely unsuited for my true talents.

Every day I come to work and I am dealing with everything I despise and for which I was not created.

There is no such thing as a perfect job, but there is such a thing as working in a place that isn't the same thing as hell.

...and in my prayers also.

"Resist the devil and he will flee." [Jas 4:7]

I thik you got a 'resist' streak in you a mile wide, so 'shooo' him away!.

uncle jim ~ Yes, I'm still rebellious. I almost didn't apply for this job for which I'm interviewing today, but my friends were I'm listening. Sometimes God speaks to us thorough people who love us (in spite of our rebellion), and thus he leads us home.

I don't know where "home" is, but I know I'm not there yet.

I won't know today, either because this is only the first step.

Ultimately I just want God's will to be done, whatever it is...and of course, I'd like to not make a fool of myself during the interview. :-)

It's about 4 o'clock on Thursday. Hopefully right now Adoro has the interview committee all so entranced that they won't let her go home to feed her dogs.

Keep up the prayers.

Adoro,you're in my prayers; I'm praying that God will set your feet along the path He wants you to follow.

uncle jim ~ I really shouldn't check my blog on breaks...I totally misread your comment because my mind was on my rebellious years and I'm still rebellious.

And yes...resistance against him works very well.

Ray ~ Well I wouldn't say they were entranced, and our interview actually ended at around 10 to 4, but they liked me. I don't know that they think I'm qualified, but they were laughing a lot.

melody ~ Thank you! That's what I want...God's will. I know it was in His plan that I go to the interview, or it wouldn't have happened. But I don't know where this path will lead.

It's hard sitting back and letting God handle things.
