This is the face...

...of a man who has a job!

Praise the Lord!

Unbeknownst to Chet, I had been praying that he would be offered a job by the start of the semester (Monday, January 10). My reasons for praying this prayer were mostly so that Chet would be relieved of the stress of job-searching (which in itself is a full-time job) before school began.

We hadn't heard anything, and after many "no" responses last semester, we had no reason to believe a yes was on it's way so soon (not that we doubted God's provision, we just assumed it would take some time.)

Then on Thursday, January 6th, Chet received a phone call offering him a job. I have no doubt that this is the job I had been praying for.

After much prayerful consideration and conversations with family and friends, we have decided to take the job. This means that Chet is going to be a JAG Corps Officer in the US Army.

There are still quite a few steps in the process, including passing the bar, passing a background check, and passing the physical. And we don't know much about the where or the when. Even so, we are very thankful.

You can't handle the truth!

Sorry, I couldn't resist, military and all.

CONGRATULATIONS! And praise the Lord.

WOW! That's huge! Congrats, and what a faithful wife you are to pray and trust in God's provision.

That is a great picture of Chet!

Wow! That will be a huge change, but we have a few close friends who are serving in the military and have found it to be such a rewarding place to serve the Lord! Congratulations!!
