a2z - letter J


This week, J is for...
JOB

I have a lot of JOBS. I work as our church secretary. It's a good JOB because I can work around my kids' schedules. Doug is home on Fridays when I go into the office; otherwise, I'm at home. I'm so thankful that I have this JOB. It's enough to help out with some of the bills.

My main JOB is as a writer. Sometimes this JOB can be a little lonely. Right now, I'm not in a good discipline place with the JOB.

I said my main JOB is as a writer, but that's not really true. My main JOB is as a mother and wife. I fail often in this JOB, but I try hard. I haven't been the perfect wife. I haven't always been the best mother. I can't do any of my JOBS without the Lord's help - and His forgiveness and the forgiveness of my family.

All these JOBS I have (include cook, laundress, chauffeur, cleaning lady, etc.) get to be too much from time to time. I end up JUGGLING and not always successfully.

Guess I'm saying I'm at a place in my life where I need to rely on the Lord to do a better JOB at all my JOBS!

What JOBS do you have? Any tips on how to do JOBS better and JUGGLE more efficiently?

Right now I equate "JOB" with "THANK YOU JESUS!" My hubby starts his new job tomorrow, after two months out of work!
