"As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, and its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him..."
~Psalm 103:15-17a

The End

Well, tomorrow is my last day as secretary/intern at KSBC.  It's kind of a bittersweet time, as I am looking forward to what's coming next, but I will definitely miss doing what I do now as well as all the people I work with.  I think the hardest part of leaving is not being able to hang out as much with all my current coworkers.  Sure, I'll see them at church and other events, but it's not the same as working side by side.  The other thing I'll miss is being able to go to staff meetings where I can hear how God is working in people's lives...and laugh at all the jokes and side comments of the interns and pastors.

So, after tomorrow, my official last day of intern/secretary, I will be working as a nanny.  I'll be watching two kids (newborn and preschooler) from 7:30-5:30, Monday - Friday.  It will definitely keep me busy, but I think I will enjoy it and it works out great as I need a summer job until the fall, when I will be going to Ecola Bible School.  Ecola is out on the coast in Oregon and is a one year Bible certificate program.  It's the same school Mom went to when she graduated from high school.  And I found out after I applied that a friend will also be going to Ecola!  It will be nice to have someone I know out there (even though I haven't seen her for 7 years or so).  I have other family and friends out in Oregon, too, which will be nice for the holidays in case I can't afford to fly home.

There's definitely a lot of change coming up.  Besides all this change in my life, Sally just got engaged and will be getting married in September!  And then moving to Washington D.C.!!  That will be a big adjustment for our whole family.

Through all of this, though, I know that God is working out His plan and that He will use these circumstances to stretch and grow me and teach me to trust Him more.  It's hard to let go sometimes and let Him take control instead of me trying to control everything for Him.  Which seems really stupid, since He does such a better job of controling things than I do. :)
