It's here!

With those friendly reminders from some of you, I have realized that too much time has passed since my last post.  My apologies.  I have been busy looking for a place to call home.  Hopefully I will have some good news to post soon on that front.  Thank you for your prayers, they have helped.  But please don’t stop, it isn’t over yet.

Before I go any farther, I have to give a great BIG shout out to my Uncle Arlie in Nevada.  Thank you for the letter in the mail.  I absolutely loved it!!!  It made my day. 

Things are starting to become more routine and I feel like I am getting more familiar with my surroundings.  I have advance and am able to get it to certain places without Barbara, my GPS!  Ha ha ha    Although this past weekend I was in Alexandria and oh boy was she busy telling me how she was “calculating route” every time I made a wrong turn.  I think I would still be driving without her assistance.   But thank the Lord, I made it back safely.

Last time, I informed you I went to Capitol Hill to attend a Congressional hearing.  What an interesting experience that was.  I love how DC has scripture carved into many locations and buildings throughout the city.  In the room we were in, not only was it freezing cold so you wouldn’t fall asleep (yes I am serious), Prov. 29:18 was carved on the wall, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” 

After the hearing we talked with the Inspector General, who happens to be Red Sox fan.  When I met him a few weeks ago I told him I would let that one slip by, we both laughed.   I really do work in a great place. 

As you can tell, I am getting more and more settled into my job at work.  This week I will be attending audit training, which should be pretty interesting.  It will be a good help as we get ready to start traveling to various states, which have yet to be announced, to begin a new stage of the audit for the department.  I am sure I will have some great stories to share once we start traveling…should be a rather interesting experience.

This coming week marks another significant point of each year.  It’s March….and for many of us that means ONE thing… not the Spring Showcase, nor Spring Break..….it’s March Madness baby!   Now that’s what I’m talking about.  Go Duke (men)  Go Tennessee (women).

With that, I think there is no better way to end…..

Thank you again for all your words of encouragement and especially your prayers.  They are felt and really mean a lot to me.

Until the next post…..The best is yet to come!
