Rejoice Jan 27th - Feb 9th

Well, its been too long since I updated my Joy Dare List so I have included it today.  I have also been wrestling with God on going back to work. I don't really have it all worked out in my mind yet, although I know God does.  I previously wrote about why I am now a stay at home mom.  I still believe everything I wrote there.  Honestly, I wholeheartedly agree that moms should be home with their babies. I do.  But I wouldn't be able to prove it by my past actions.  I cannot explain this belief alongside the knowledge that God called me to work before and that He is calling me to go back to work now.  I have been resisting.  I'd like to pretend that I am all on board now.  But some days I am and some days I am not.  The funny thing is, once I do it, I know I will love it.  I love serving kids and families through my work.  I do not know exactly where He is sending me to work.  But right now I am praying that it is part time and/or that I get off work by the time the girls are out of school.  And so, I have been updating my resume and soon will send it out.  Depending on what happens, my blog may take some turns.  But I do plan to keep blogging and I am excited to see where God is taking me, and us.  I am honored that you read my blog and stuck with me to hear my struggle with returning to work.
