New job!

Rob got a job today. We are pretty happy about it. He still had about 8 weeks left of unemployment checks, but he starts on Tuesday. He was able to have the entire summer off to be with the boys. This will definately be a summer they'll never forget. Lots of good "boy" time. His job is here in town, which is nice for us. This is something that he was really interested, working here in our town. It doesn't pay as much as he made when he lost his job, but you know, I know God has it all figured out, and I am just having the faith that he will take care of us. God definately hasn't left us without. He is a great big God, he supplied the need we had in his time. Again, I am reminded of the fact the Rob had more time with the boys than he's ever had.

To God be the glory!

A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Can I say that again? Awesome! (Being a child of the '80s, I feel a little silly using that word, but I mean it to its full measure.)

Did I ever tell you about the fact that my Husband lost his job one week after our oldest turned 1 year? He was out of work or trying to start a business from home for 8-9 months. He saw her first steps, heard her first words and spent oodles of time with us both. It was great. It cost us a lot of $$$ (equity out of the home) but was worth every penny, and the Lord showed us the increase we needed in the past decade to recover.

I'm so glad for you all that He's found a job, but moreso that you all have such an abiding and confident trust in your Heavenly Father to provide. Your testimony in this season has been truly infectious; I am strengthened because of it.

Congratulations again! And God bless you all.

Hi Melissa...o.k...here 'goes...

(1) Go to a blog or other site you want to link. Make sure it's the Home page of whatever site (not a specific post or single page).

(2) Highlight and "Control" & "C" like you do to link, holding it in your computer's memory.

(3) Go to your Dashboard (where you go to ask to create a new post), BUT click on CHANGE SETTINGS instead. It looks like a little blue wheel.

(4) From the four tabs up top, choose TEMPLATE

(5) Now you'll have a window inside a window. (Like when you leave a comment on blogger...you're working on a window inside a window.) Scoot the outside window down a bit so you can see the entire inside window easily.

(6) On the inside window, scroll about 8/10th of the way down. You will see three consecutive lines of reasonable length that include the Google link and two Blogger links that say EDIT ME. I tried to copy them here, but the comment forum won't let me publish. They're not too hard to notice.

(7)Highlight everything between the " symbols and then "Control" & "v" to replace it with your choice of site.

(8) Now replace the words EDIT ME with the blog or site name.

(9)Every other symbol is important, so don't touch!

(10) To add more than the two or three they allow, simply copy the line for as many times as you want to, or (because you're already busy holding a blog address in your memory) just go to the end of one of the EDIT ME lines, press ENTER once and hand-type all the symbols and script in yourself.

Let me know if that was clear as mud, okay? I'll be lurking!

Oh! I forgot to remind you to go to the PUBLISHING page, SAVE SETTINGS and then REPUBLISH your blog.

Also...can't stress enough...if you move, erase or add even one little quotation mark, the whole line simply won't appear on your republished blog. So be careful.

Also...at the bottom of the TEMPLATE page, you can VIEW your edits and CLEAR them to start over if you blow it.
