I mentioned here that Matt’s job future was a bit uncertain. Matt’s boss has a definite moving date now, so his final day of work with him was last Monday.
We have known for over a year that this would happen, so we’ve been planning for it. We feel very strongly that God wants us to stay in this town to continue building on the relationships we have here.
Matt has decided that as long as it works, he’ll just continue to do construction/home repair work on his own (plus soccer coaching in season). He’s already lined up several jobs and every day another possibility comes up for more work.
He also purchased a nice snow blower at an auction and has been talking with various downtown business owners (and homeowners) about snow removal. Already, he has some contracts worked out to remove snow for people. (Sorry fellow Nebraskans…never thought we’d say this…but our theme song around here is “Let it Snow!”.)
Beyond these two things, we also plan to continue to cater auctions and are looking into other possible catering ideas. (Since we know a thing or two about food and enjoy it so much.) :)
We’re excited about the possibilities. By doing a little of this and a little of that…it should add up to enough. God always gives us enough.
Sometimes I look too far into the future and get a little nervous. Sure, he has jobs lined up for now. What if the jobs stop coming in? What if it doesn’t snow much this winter? What if, what if?
I finally decided…Focus on one day at a time. That’s all any of us can really do anyway, right? Each day has enough worry of it’s own. One day at a time…God will provide.
I love being able to rest in his promises.
