Officially Unemployed

Today is Bob's official first day unemployed. I wasn't sure what to expect when I woke up this morning but today doesn't feel any different. The birds are singing, the sun is shining and the kids are lively as ever. It's not like I expected it to be raining or everything frozen in place but shouldn't something indicate there's a enormous change going on in our lives? Perhaps the changes are on the inside. Here is what we see:

1. Bob is happy.

2. Bob is very happy.

3. Bob is not stressed.

4. Bob is different.

5. Bob is smiling.

We've made our decision on what path we are going to take for the next few months. It all started a few months back. My husband has been really stressed at work and hasn't been all that happy with things the way they were. He has always desired to have his own business but felt like we couldn't just quit and go that route because we have responsibilities like say...a house payment, food for the children, Starbucks, etc.

A dear friend of mine and I started praying about what direction God wanted us to take. Then as you've read previously, Bob was laid off. This was totally not what we were expecting. We've had several confirmations to that direction and feel that God is giving us a unique opportunity to embrace that would benefit all of us. Even though the future is uncertain, we are confident that this is the way God is directing us.

So with all that said, we've made a decision to start our own business, Bob's PC Pro. We are very excited about this new adventure. It's a little scary but yet exciting. God has opened a door that we weren't expecting and are seizing the moment. Even though the market may seem like this isn't a good time to go off on our own, we know that God is bigger than all that and are trusting Him with whatever may come.
