Maybe some sad news (updated)

I'm home right now, even though church is going on. We spent the long weekend in Alabama at my high school reunion (I had tons of fun. I'll post about that in the next day or two...), so we decided it might be nice for Cole to rest at home instead of get back in the car as soon as we got home. (I read something recently about how ashamed we should be of skipping church on Sunday to "rest" for the upcoming week. I guess I feel a little ashamed, but not ashamed enough not to broadcast it for all the internet world to see.)

Anyway, I got online to see about any new school postings I might have missed since Wednesday. The counseling position that I interviewed for is not posted anymore. Last time this happened I got a call the next day telling me I didn't get the job, so I'm a little panicky. There's no one for me to call for reassurance (or the horrible truth) since everyone else is at church. I'm freaking out just a little. I'd like to know if I have valid reason to worry. Really. I can handle the truth. I just don't like sitting here not knowing... Any help/advice/encouragement?

UPDATE: I remained calm until Mindy got home. When I called her for her input, she got online to check it out with me. Her findings: It's still on there. My realization: When I applied for it, they removed it from the list of possible openings for me. Whew! Maybe I need to read Beth Moore's worry post again.

Kate,
If you didn't get that job, then it is their loss. God has one for you, it just may take a little time. Only God knows right now. I will continue to pray that you get this one though because I know it is what you wanted. I love you and missed you while you were gone. Gotta get together before my trip.
Love,
Mandy

It's always stressful when hunting for the right job. Good luck in your journey. I know you will find a position that's the perfect fit. Keep the faith!

Nah, you always have fun things to talk about like your job and Cole. I like reading about others...just not myself :) I did have the five most wonderful spies that moved a piano for me and I think they are wonderful!! Thanks for the comment :)

Hi, you don't know me, but I came across your blog recently and have been back-reading my way through. I wanted to comment on your entry. I hope and pray that you did not feel ashamed because you didn't go to church on this particular Sunday. God doesn't keep score, people keep score. God knows what is truly in your heart, people do not. You aren't less of a Christian (I wrote this, "or less of a Preacher's Wife", but oh, your identity is SO much more than Preacher's Wife) because you missed a Sunday to rest. As a grown Church of Christ PK, I understand the ease in which we can guilt ourselves into a tizzy and how pointless that tizzy is. Anywho, enjoying your blog. Hope you don't find this too intrusive, it is all meant to be supportive. I really am enjoying your blog.
