So tomorrow is the big day. In Jesus name this job is mine. I have my outfit already picked out and waiting patiently for 11:20 a.m. to come. It seems weird that it's already here and the anticipation I had been feeling is easing into something more like, um for a lack of words, acceptance. Acceptance that it's here, and acceptance that it's mine. So if you can remember to pray for me, I would appreciate it.

Most might have heard that I had decided to pursue a different career path. I put my notice in on June 11th, and was hoping to have a job by the time my last day came along (July 9th), but as God would have it, I have not found another position.
I have two interviews next week (July 29th at 11:20 a.m., and July 31st at 3:00 p.m.) for an Office Manager position , and an Attendance Technician position with the San Lorenzo Unified School District. The Attendance Tech job is just a waiting list for the position, but the Office Manager has an opening at Washington Manor Middle School. I have taken my (BY FAITH)letter of acceptance (basically, the letter that says I passed the test and have an interview) with me to the altar of prayer, and well, actually everywhere I go.
The funny thing....I have over 50 applications that I have sent out, and these are the only two that I have interviews with. I know God has the timing all down and everything, but I guess I was hoping that my application would scream "HIRE HER!!!!"...but God knows where He wants me.
Anyways if you could remember me and say a prayer that God would give me favor, because I am terrified of the interview part. I have never really had a formal interview, so this will be my first, and I haven't the slightest idea on what to say.
I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

Well, next week, Joel, Bryan, Siena, and I can pretend that we are!
Can you guess where we are going?
Yep! That's right!!!!
Yep! That's right!!!!
Three fun-filled days to be worry and care free! We leave early Thursday morning, and come back late Monday. Our trip entails (no pun intended there), ARGHHHH!, a Pirate's Dinner, Magic Mountain, dinner at the Santa Monica Pier, a Gopsel Sunday Brunch, and we even get to see our long lost buddies, "The Mouses" (The Mickey Mouses' that is). As the time get closer, I keep clapping my hands and getting the giggly laugh. You know the one? When your anticipating something good to happen!
Like on Christmas morning and all the presents are out under the tree, (and even the night before when you couldn't sleep because you wanted to open up your gifts right now and see what you got), and you jumping on Mom and Dad's bed saying "MOM! DAD! Come on, GET UP!!! COME OOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!! It's Christmas morning! Let's open the preeeeeesssseeeeeeennnnnntsssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!"
That's exactly how I feel!!! I can't wait to walk through the doors of DISNEYLAND and be all giggly like a care free kid!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008~
So while we were on vacation, Sis. Rushing had yet another hospital trip due to high potassium levels. They got that under control and she came home last Wednesday. Sunday night Sis. Rushing came to church and gave such a moving testimony of about how God knows the reasons that we go through things, and it was very moving (I can say that there was probably not a dry eye in the room). She did go home during service because she was not feeling good again, but God has His hand in all of this like Sis. Rushing said. As I receive updates, I will post them.
JULY 8, 2008 Morning Update~
Sis. Rushing had the heart cath done yesterderday that included another two stints (for a total of 6 stints in the last two weeks). She did not have another heart attack, but when doing to heart cath procedure they found another artery 80% blocked and inserted a stint. She seemed to be doing good before our Pastor left the hospital for the evening, but when he came back to the Hospital in the morning, they said that last night she lost a lot of blood, and would be in need of a blood transfusion today. She will not be going home today, possibly tomorrow.
JULY 7th Morning update~
JULY 7th Morning update~
She was admitted to Fremont Kaiser where they determined that she would need to undergo another Heart Cath to prevent another Heart attack from happening. She will be moving to Santa Clare Kaiser sometime today, and hopefully have the procedure sometime this afternoon.
July 7th Afternoon update:
The procedure went well and she is resting.
Most might have not heard that Sis. Rushing had a heart attack about two weeks ago. I will say one thing about Sis. Rushing, she may have poor health, but she is a SOLDIER!!!
She went into the hospital Tuesday morning with pains in her chest that she said were similar to her heart attack she had 8 years ago. Her EKG's were abnormal, all different results, and showed signs of a heart attack. The doctor's gave her a blood transfusion and said she may be facing open heart surgery, but were going to try and do a heart cath, and see if they could fix the problem with that.
They did a heart cath on her and inserted 4 stints and the following day she went home. The procedure took a little over 3 hours, but seemed to be doing well. While the surgery took place, they found an artery that was 100% blocked, but they were able to open it up with a stint, and she was not going to need open heart surgery.
This last week she has been home resting with some discomfort, but tonight (Sunday, June 6th) she went back to the hospital with chest pains again and may have just been low on her blood level again, but I am asking if you could keep her in prayer.
She is my inspiration, and someone I look up to. We don't always get to have a personal relationship with our Pastor's wife, but she is like the mom that I didn't have, and when it was hard to keep going, she was there!!!
She is what a true Christian is, and should be! I know God can do a miracle in her life, because He has done so, many times before.
Thanks in advance for your prayers. I know the Rushing family will appreciate you lifting them up in prayer. I'll post updates as I hear them.
