It's Official!

There have been a few official things happening in our lives. Here is a few:

1. My brother-in-law David just got engaged to a lovely, young, long-time friend named Amity. Congrats to you both! May you serve the Lord with gladness!
2. Hil turned 6 months. He can sit up all by himself. I wish I had a pic!
3. I have accepted a job offer and we are moving north, into Yankee territory! We are moving to the State of New York. I at least hope people in New York have a little state pride and can sing their state song. Not so in VA. There is a little meeting of like-minded believers in Jesus Christ who we will be able to join as well.

When I put in my notice with my boss this week, he came and gave me a slip of paper that said the following:

My first job was working in an Orange Juice factory, but I got canned. I couldn't concentrate. *This is just a classic one-liner that everyone should memorize and use at appropriate times*

Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe. *tough way to go!*

After that, I tried to be a Tailor, but I wasn't suited for it--mainly because it was a sew-sew job. *Your singin' my song, brother!*

Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factor, but that was too exhausting. (Is Gpa Sush laughing yet???!!)

I attempted to be a Deli Worker, but any way I sliced it, *can you guess it?* I just couldn't cut the mustard.

I studied a long time to become a Doctor, but I didn't have any patience. *no comments needed on this one folks. the next one is better."

Next, was a job in a Shoe Factory. I tried but I couldn't fit in. I became depressed and soulful. *ba bom - bom tsaaH*

I got a job working for a Pool Maintenance company, but the work was just too draining. *whacka whacka whacka*

[can you even handle any more people........?]

I got a job as a historian, until I realized there was no future in it.

*My sides are hurting! Stop Stephen, STOP!*

And for the Grand Finale..............

Finally, I realized my calling. I have been working as a Professional Fisherman. Because I found I could live on my net income.

The End.

The really scary thing is that my 2.5 yr old daughter is more slap stick than me! Don't say I didn't warn you!

For a moment I thought Gracie was writing this post. I began to wonder, "who is this Amity David is engaged to and why haven't we heard?". Then I read further and realized the David referenced was Gracie's brother. :)
Congrats on the new job! Praying for you guys and the transition.

And you know what's really funny, Sarah, when I read Stephen's post, I momentarily started thinking he was talking about his brother too!!! :-) I was surprised too!!! :-) And I didn't even have a good excuse to think that!

Right. We don't know who our welder carries the torch for.
