my job
« on: September 04, 2008, 08:21:42 PM »
As of this Tuesday, I was suspended with pay from my job as a teacher in the district I work in.  It has to do with my credentials--apparently there not in order but I'm working on that now.  I have a hearing this coming Tuesday to appeal the decision and to be reinstated immediately.  I hope I can return.  If I fail, then I will be released on the 19th of this month and be without my job.  Your prayers would be much appreciated.  thanks.

Thanks everyone for your prayers.  My hearing to determine my status is tonight.  I could either be released or rehired. I don't know how it will come out.  I ask for your prayers that, whatever the outcome, I submit faithfully to God's will and not be overcome by worry and distress.  Thank you, my friends.

Thanks be to God!
I'm in a similar situation, with more complications.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
