"Straight Shooting" Update

Six months ago, I posted this about what was going on in our life. I do try to keep my blog positive and upbeat but wanted to be transparent too. I prayed many times for God to take over our situation and help us to be in the center of His will. I felt that part of that would be taking steps of faith in the right direction.
In March, I resigned from the high school where I taught full-time (I finished the school year, of course, first). I loved many things about my job but didn't love the time it demanded away from my family. For now, I'll continue teaching part-time at the community college. What a load lifted! I can't say how tough the decision was, especially when they call asking me to come back.... Truly a leap of faith.
Two months later, Ron was offered a new position as a finance manager for a Honda dealership (first, he was offered something lower down the ladder but days before he started was advanced to this... God is GOOD!)...He actually was in sales there four years ago, but the 100% commission was scary at times. Praise God, he's on salary + commission now!! I am so thankful for this for many reasons; one of which is that Ron is loving what he's doing, and once you've been on the other side of that fence you don't take that for granted ever!.
We have moved into our own place-- an apartment (pics coming soon) close to Ron's job. And someone's made an offer on our house! PRAY that it happens!

Philippians 4:19
