All in a Year’s Work

This time last year, Brad and I were about to start some major tasks.  I was starting my first tax season in my first “career” accounting job.  That in itself was an adjustment, as I learned to juggle work with being a wife and mother to a 1 year old.  But we decided, what’s the big deal?  Why don’t we add adoption to the list?  And our apartment won’t hold another child, so we better build a house.  Oh yeah, and Rachel, you should sit for all four sections of the CPA exam BEFORE you’re a mother of two! Brad, are you feeling ready to start the ordination process? Let’s dive in. 

How is that for taking on the world finacially, mentally, and emotionally?

Today, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. I am not quite so new at work. We’ve done everything we can do for our adoption at the moment, other than WAIT. (and wait and wait.)  We are living in the house that Brad worked so hard on for us.  And today at noon, I am sitting for my fourth and final section of the CPA exam. Will you pray that I pass?

“In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.”  Prov. 16:9
