Giving Thanks To God

God always answers prayers. Sometimes He says yes. Sometimes He says no. Sometimes He says not right now, the time is not right yet. I have been praying since Lauren was born that God would help Stephen find the perfect job. I have also prayed that I could one day stay home with the kids. Stephen has applied for several media-type positions at A&M but he was never even called for an interview. I have heard that it's all about who you know. A guy Stephen works with at the TV station also works at A&M and told him about an upcoming opening. Stephen applied, he got a call for an interview, he went to the interview today..I prayed.

This time His answer was YES! Stephen was just hired as the Electronic Audio Visual Specialist for the Texas A&M Health Science Center! They hired him on the spot. This is blessing us in so many ways. Right now he is working 3 am until 7 am. He has been getting less than 5 hours of sleep and then watching all 3 kids upon arriving home so I could go to work. His new hours will be 4-9 pm Monday through Thursday. He will be making more money and receiving benefits (which he isn't right now). He will have 2 student workers.

So now that my husband is an employee of the A&M system and his blood already runs maroon, can I say he is an Aggie?

YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's so great! I'm very happy for y'all! Do the benefits include football tickets?

Stephanie said...

Heather, Oh how I wish they included football tickets. But we will have a parking pass. Oh wait, it's at the Health Science Center across the street from the Vet school. Maybe he will befriend someone that will have football passes but not go to all the games. Stephen still hasn't been to a game yet!
