Don’t Stop Even When There are Detours…

So proud of this man 😘. Two Thursdays ago, he surrendered his At&t IDs, company laptop, phone, building keys, and parking passes back to the company after a year of being out for disability. He worked for At&t for 20 years. His long term disability application was denied and is officially not with At&t anymore – again. πŸ™ The first time he got cut from the company, he waited 4 years for them to hire him back. We don’t know how long we will wait this time. What an unexpected surgery has done right? But no – we believe God has His plans and they are perfect – and He could be in the process of unfolding a new chapter in our lives. We also have high hopes a second appeal will be granted – which is already in the works. And I love that despite the denial of his request – he never loses his inner joy in him. He was thrilled to show me that he made copies of his ID’s as remembrance for that last term. Personally, I want him to retire already and do other things that interest him, like arts, sports, and the like. But he loves electronics and he is the best Telecomm Specialist! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ’–
The next day however, an electronic company that At&t referred my husband to, called him back to say that they want to hire him. To cut the story short – after passing interviews and tests – he is officially starting with them next Monday. And his new office is just 2 blocks down his old building in downtown Chicago. Hence, our supposedly scheduled vacation in June to the Philippines for our 10th year anniversary was moved to this week instead – and the reroute to Washington DC and neighboring States😯 – which I am loving so far. πŸ€— πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š
God is faithful and He answers prayers. πŸ™πŸ»Sometimes sooner, sometimes longer, sometimes He even allows detours for us to learn to honor and appreciate His perfect plans for us. His itinerary includes STOPS that encourage your journey. What can we ask Him that He hasn’t given yet? He has given more – and has done much! And my soul is so satisfied. For His love satisfies. I can only give Him all the praises and glory, with tears in my eyes. πŸ˜”
