This week has been a bit that way.
As of Saturday last week, my husband is now 'unemployed'... stupid Aldi. They decided that something he did (that most of the other managers also do) was worth firing him for... so here we are. But you know what? It's ALL OK!! God has a plan for us, He will never leave nor forsake us, and I believe when He closes one door He opens another. So we are happy and hopeful for bigger and better things for our family! Greg was almost fed up anyway with the crap he was getting at Aldi. Funny enough his best friend actually technically resigned the same day as Greg was let go.... they both had been getting the pressure heaped on them lately so we think the company was trying to get rid of them both anyway - just coz they don't suck up to their area managers and others, and stood up for what 'they' thought was right for them and their stores. So we are all actually happy to be out of Aldi. Our pastor actually revealed to Greg that he had always felt a bad presence around Aldi so he never shopped there. Must have been the whole disregard for family, staff etc... Greg is a lot happier in himself this week without all the stress. And that's ultimately better for our family. I know that God will provide for us if Greg can't get another job before we run out of the pay-out, but I believe God will get him into the right job before then. We are actually excited to be looking in different areas. Greg is actually thinking of going into Customs or even the Federal Police, as he did a justice degree years back. Ultimately that's where he'd like to be eventually. So its just now watching out for jobs coming up in those areas, maybe getting started on some fitness training if Greg decided to go to Canberra for the Feds, and maybe getting something temporary until these jobs come up. Its a new chapter in our life and God is walking with us every step of the way.
We were going to be going down to Sydney and surrounding areas on holiday at Easter, but due to Greg's work, we can't really go then anymore as we don't know if he'll have a job, be able to get time off etc. So.... we decided to go somewhere next week!! This is really exciting! A spontaneous family holiday which we are really looking forward to. We are driving down to Coffs Harbour tomorrow now, for 3 nights. We can't go away for as long as we originally wanted to in case we need the extra $$ but this is going to be great anyway! We are staying in a little resort right on the beach. We'll go to the Big Banana, to the beach everyday and just relax and have some special time together as a family.
We are leaving tomorrow morning, early, so I should be off packing and getting organised... busy day today too - church, a worship meeting, cell group and my family for dinner - as well as finishing the packing! Phew!!
Hope you all have a great week and Happy Sunday :)
