Life Is Slowing Down… Sort Of

I haven’t been able to update this blog as much lately because of life.  Firstly, I am really enjoying my new job and the work days seem to fly by.  The phone that has been a constant fixture in my hand for the last 12 years is slowly working itself free.  I actually forgot to bring it with me the other day.  It was awesome.  I’m not on-call any more which is WONDERFUL!  I can work overtime… if I want.  They like network maintenance to be done around 8:30 in the morning after shift changes at the hospital.  No more 2am maintenance windows!  I am loving that!

We are slowly learning to be a family without my son living at home.  It’s taking some adjustment.  But we’re learning to heal from all last Fall and Winter’s shennanigans.  He seems to be adjusting to his new home too.  I actually got to have lunch with him last week when his group home showed up at the hospital cafeteria.

I am flying every week.  I work late on Fridays so I go in late.  I’ll take my PPG out for half hour, maybe 45 minutes and then head into work.  I fly again on Saturday morning.  It’s been pleasant learning a new way to fly.

But other than this there are no earth-shattering happenings, no life-altering revelations, just living a simple and slower life.  Despite the slower pace of life, the days seem to fly by.  But the one constant in our lives has been Christ.  We have definitely felt His presence in each and every day.  And each and every day we are grateful!

And with that I leave you with a few photos of my flights this past week…

Week Two at San Joaquin General Hospital

I haven’t had time to update my blog lately because this new job has kept me hopping from the time I arrive at work until quitting time.  This has been a wonderful experience so far.  I really like the people I’m working with.  For the first time in my career, I work in an office with a window!  A corner office no less!  Now, I do share the office with one other gentleman but we get along very good.  It’s pretty much the same kind of work as my last job but there’s just… less of it.  Most of my work here is going to be helping them organize their networking environment.

Since it is a hospital I can’t really post too many pictures of my work due to patient privacy but I will be posting some exterior shots.  They have a mix of modern architecture and early 20th century brick work.  Kind of reminds me of Gotham City.  At any rate I am still here and will hopefully be able to update more as I get settled into my job.

I Have Been Co-Sourced – Part II

I had to write one more thing about this job change and give God glory in the process.  I was speaking to my boss (who is also a believer) about how we prayed for this job and the timing of it all.  She then told me the rest of the story.  How the job posting had been denied and closed.  That as far as they knew they would not be getting a permanent employee.  At some point the position mysteriously re-opened.  They didn’t know the position had opened up until they started receiving applications and resumes.  I was the last person they interviewed.  My soon-to-be boss was shocked.  She had been praying for a new employee to help out with networking.  The last person they talked to on the last day was the one they had been waiting (and praying) for… me.

God’s timing and provision are perfect.
