Lately...

Sorry for the recent lack of words on the blog. I have been quite discouraged about my job, lately. My life has consisted of sleep, work, sleep, work. I shouldn't be complaining. I know that there are so many people that have much more miserable jobs than I do, but I MISS MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!! I have been fervently praying for God to show me some light. I am not sure if the light will be in my current job, or somewhere else...but I desperately need to see it. I am feeling defeated and weak, but I am so very thankful that I can cling so tightly to the words of my Lord...
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9


He always makes me happy...

Jamie,
I will be praying for you and Michael and that you will find the "light" you need. I cannot imagine what a hard time you are having not getting to spend time with the person you've waited so long to be married to. But, as you said, God's strength is made perfect in our weakness. I know that there is a reason for you having to go through this season and it will only make you closer and make you love Michael even more!

Hi Jamie!
I have been wondering where you were...missed your blog!
However, it is WEIRD but I KNEW you were sad about your job!!!
I had SUCH a problem with working nights. I felt "homesick" most nights. The ONLY way I can compare it is the way you felt when you were young and got homesick and HAD to go home!! I would miss Jeremy SO BADLY! Then, in the AM pass him on the way to work :(
I am praying for you.
There are LOTS of jobs out there for you. I am praying that God shows you where He needs you!
Love you,
Aly

Jamie,
I know exactly what you are going through, if not even more! I pray for strength everyday just to be able to make it to the next day. Just know you are not alone! I try to tell myself that someone is always worse off than me! (I know that doesn't always help!) I miss being with my husband more than anyone!! If you ever need to talk to anyone just call. I am in Dallas this week and Alexandria, LA next week. I will be home Feb 27 hopefully we can get together while I'm home, I always enjoy your and Micheal's company! Love Ya'll!!

Hey Lil Sis!
I know what you are going through. I worked the night shift on and off for 14 years with Jitney and Wal-Mart. Part of the problem is that sleeping during the day is not natural. The sleep that you get during the day is not the same quality of sleep that you get at night. Two things that you can do to combat that is to make sure that the room is totally dark and to take a melatonin suppliment before you go to bed. That helped me. That and constantly reminding myself that 'this too shall pass'. Hang in there, God will show you the other side of this in His time. Be patient.
