It Finally Happened!!!

Well, I'm just so estatic right now!! I am so happy and cannot express my love to my Heavenly Father as I'd like because I just feel so loved!!! OH MY GOODNESS! I guess I better tell you. Well, as you know, or some of you may not know, Travis has been a roofer for many years, and with our economy, has been a difficult job to work in. Also, with the desire to finish his education, it's been hard for Travis to be able really work full time and go to school full time. Well, as it would have it, he has applied everywhere for the last 14 months, and more fervently the last 9 months. Well as each interview or application would bring the result of was hard to not get discouraged. Well, we have been talking about the things we'd like to do in order to get out of debt and work towards our family goals, and as it would have it, Travis had a job opportunity from one of his friends. He applied, and once again, it was turned down. I'm telling you, the Lord has tested our patience this whole marriage, and has taught us to rely on others, on Him, and to realize that we cannot do this all alone.
This is when our faith was put to the test. Travis' friend called him again, and told him about another opening at his work. Travis applied and two days later had a phone interview. Then had an interview with the company, and then it happened. The weeks worth of waiting to hear if this would be another denial, or a reminder that maybe we have not been in the right place at the right time. Each night we go to bed, we make sure to thank Heavenly Father for our jobs and for the opportunity to work each day. We understand there are many who do not have jobs, and we are so richly blessed. Well, as it would have it, today while I was at work, I got a text from Trav. I looked at it and could do nothing be cry. HE GOT THE JOB!!!! This was the absolute greatest day of my life. My husband can have a good job, with benefits, to go along with mine, and can focus on school. He can finish his education and we can accomplish all of those things that Heavenly Father would like us to do. I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who knows who we are. He knows Trav's needs, as well as mine, and he can test us, and can try our faith, but as it would turn out, He ALWAYS has us in mind.
I love my Heavenly Father so much, and he is the greatest Father. He has richly blessed our lives so much, and still continues to bless us! I love my husband more than anything....I love him with all my heart plus a trillion more.
It Finally Happened! It just took patience, and faith...and trust.
