Have I mentioned that Brad just started his own business last month? He did. Have I mentioned that I was appointed bookkeeper and that I don't know the first thing about it? I was, and I don't. I also probably failed to mention how excited I am about this business ownership thing. That is because I am not really. Supportive, definitely. Excited? Um... not so much. I do not have what you would call an entrepreneurial spirit. I personally like the idea of working for the man. He offers a steady paycheck and a benefits package. What's so bad about that? In fact, when Brad turned down a salary plus benefits offer from one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico in favor of starting his own company, I must say that my reaction ranged between disbelief and nausea. I don't mean to imply that Brad's refusal of the job was a surprise to me. On the contrary. We consulted and prayed together for a long time before coming to an agreed decision. But once we received an answer from God, Brad never looked back. I sure did. He pretty much has more faith than I do. The next day he got an email from the construction company asking him to reconsider, and I responded, "Do it! Maybe they'll offer you more money!" Yeah, I know. I'm the devil. Well, maybe not the devil so much as Ms. Doubting Thomas. If Heavenly Father has a plan for me, I want the blueprints. None of this one step at a time stuff. Give me the details!
I told you. Faithless.
But not for long! My faith steadily increases as I have seen how carefully and lovingly Heavenly Father has been taking care of us. I've already made marked improvement: these days I only hyperventilate about once a week.
