This morning my boss told me that a co-worker had complimented me... said I was a tornado... that he was impressed with how I handle clients. That was sweet.
Then this afternoon another co-worker also complimented me and I was so touched. She said, "I wish I had your confidence". *sigh* Wow. Confidence. Who would ever associate that word with me? I felt led to share with her... I said, "four weeks ago I was so depressed and discouraged that I tried to kill myself". And I told her the story... a week in the hospital... escape from Egypt... find a job, find a place to live, find furniture, move my kid up here.... I said, "I have NOTHING. None of is this has anything to do with my strength or confidence or ability..." And I told her, in complete humility that it is all God. I told her that I was considered the weakest link in my last office... how my self-confidence was in the toilet...
Someone else told me in response to my questions earlier in the week that she felt intimidated by the bible and never really read it. She said that she got her bible reading from what I wrote. Wow. What a huge responsibility! I never set out to preach or to use this blog (or anything I write) to be anything other than Heather Living Out Loud. I think as people we're just like tubes of toothpaste... when we get stepped on, what's inside us come oozing out. I'm as surprised as anyone to learn that anything good could come out of me... but I'm glad!
2 Samuel 22:33 It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.
See how simple it is? It's just happy little truths that give me encouragement. I'm no great biblical scholar but I like things like that.
We ordered Dominos for dinner! I was surprised to find they deliver out here. They do!
Pizza is here. Peace out!
