Jobs

Do you ever just wake up and want to sing?
I did this morning. It was very cold in myhouse, yet my heart was warm with praise! No, I can't tell you why...well, I suppose I don't know why...Maybe simply becasue my God died for me and no other reason.

In my Reflections book, (a journal of me for my kids) it asks me to tell about my first job. So, my first job was for H&R Block when I was maybe 10 years old. I might have been 11. Every Christmas, they would send out cards and the envelopes had to be addressed by hand. So, i got paid $3 per book of reciepts. The reciepts had the customer name and address on them. Must've been 100 in each book. And there was box after box of these things! It took me weeks to write them all and I would write until my hands were too sore to write anymore, give them a rest and write again! Maybe I just have a knack for writing? lol

My second job was as a newspaper carrier. I hated it in the winter, getting up early on Sunday mornings to deliver the paper! I had a really good route and got great tips at the holiday time. Then I worked at Burger King when I was 14. Could only take orders, couldn't touch the fryers because I was too young. Since the young pup job, I've been a machinist, an uphosteror, a manager at Hardees and Burger King, waitress, cook, made electrical switches for cars' airbags, telemarketer for Rainbow vacuum cleaners, receptionist for an accounting firm, and for Sysco...gee, I know there are more, but I can't think of them...

And to think, with all that experience doing all those different jobs, I would find that the best job I've ever had is right here at home...To all those femisist people out there--I wouldn't trade all the money in the world for the job I have here teaching my kids! (and I made great money as an upholsteror) I used to think, I had to work, that I just couldn't handle being home. I used to say I was the reason God made public school...now I know better. Maybe it's just growth. I don't know. But here I am, with my kids 24/7 and I actually like it--love it! Who would've thought??

After I had my son I went back to work because the dream I had of being home had not worked out.
I went to work and I believe it was a real part of what God allowed to change my life.
Now I am home and allthough my children are in school I am now hear for another reason-Paw Paw.
God puts us where He does for a reason. And if we can rest--He can use us.

RECALLED!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:
P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control


Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!
GOD

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
