Wedding Shower Cookies

This week I got to make cookies for a dear friend of mine's wedding shower. It was her lingerie shower which made making the cookies really fun! Plus I got to practice some wedding cookies and hopefully get some more business from it!

Well, God answers prayers!
Thursday I got a call from my mom at work on Wednesday last week, asking if I knew a lady. I didn't recognize the name, but she insisted the lady knew me. Turns out that I had one class with her at Sinclair, and we had talked because she dates one of my co-workers. She found her dream job and needed someone to take her place. I called her and she asked if I could interview that day, but I was covered in cookie dough so we decided Thursday morning would be better. I went in Thursday and answered some questions on a piece of paper. Then the owner came and looked over the paper and offered me a job. I literally said "Are you serious?" He has asked me no other questions, but trusted the recomendation. So I started Monday and think it seems like a great job. I'm doing all the bookeeping at The Carpet Store, and my hours are 9-2...can't get better hours than that!
Through this I've realized just how much God is in control and how His timing is perfect. The time I had off was great to pack for the move and then to get a little settled in once we moved.
HE is awesome!!!

Music and babies

I made cookies this week for our praise band picnic and some to include with a baby shower gift. Final outcome...

The organized tray I took to the picnic...

And the baby shower cookies. I will use a sheep and a turtle as gift tags...

I love my new kitchen

I just rolled out the cookies on my new kitchen counter. I love it so much. It beats doing it at the kitchen table and breaking my back bending over to roll it out.
The "Cookie Counter" is the one on the right since there's so much room to spread out.

So I'm just sitting here waiting for Phil to get home with some flour. I was mixing cookie dough and realized I only had 2 cups of flour and need 5 cups. I guess I need to keep better track of my ingredients.
I'm making music cookies for the band picnic on Friday and onesie cookies for a gift for a baby shower on Sunday. Hope the rest of the process goes smoother than this. Pictures to come later...

Being Content in my unemployment

About a month ago I was put on a temporary layoff status. I was ok with this, as it was somewhat a voluntary thing. Most of the other ladies in our accounting department were their own income, so I new I was able to handle it the best. On Friday I found out this layoff would turn to permanent status. At first I was upset, a little amplified by some unsuccessful job interviews. But a friend wrote a note regarding her thought on her unemployment, and changed my perspective. Basically, she said that middle/upper class base so much of their lives on their career. Instead of dwelling on my unemployment, I need to take this time to grow closer to God, and to trust in His control. He provides for his children and I need to just remember that. So that being said, I'm more content, and focusing on my growth in the Lord.

Thanks to Amy for opening my eyes.
My girls who keep me in line...
