TMI?

I don't know. You tell me.

It seems like a lot of the time when you talk about having money trouble people clam up. But I'm an "out there" kind of gal.

So since my kids are in school there's been this big debate over whether or not I should get a job. Every paycheck that comes and we can't afford something I think we need, I feel this urgency to get a job.

But then, I feel like this big loser mom. The Proverbs 31 woman made money without "going to work"...is that what I'm supposed to do? If so, I'm at a complete loss. But then I see all these moms around me doing all of these great things...making beautiful bows, dresses, cakes, etc. And it's not that I'm envious...because I honestly have no desire to do those things...but my talents are in the "hey there...good job on those bows, dresses and cakes!" arena...is there a job that doesn't require a college education or virtually ANY smarts and lets you just encourage other people?! IF so, sign me up. Cause other than that I can clean toilets. And it is with far less enthusiasm that I say "sign me up" for a job where I have to clean toilets.

So, I don't know. I guess I'll just be open to any and all (even the ones that involve cleaning toilets) possibilities and if God thinks I need a job He'll supply one. (Is it wrong to request one where no toilets are involved?)

God is good. He's always provided before...there's no reason to doubt Him now. I trust Him...and because I do...He will make my paths straight.
