Didn't get the job
« on: July 30, 2009, 03:02:49 PM »
I finally found out today that this job I was holding out for didn't pan out.  I was really hoping that this would be it.  Now, I'm not sure what to do.  Nothing else has opened up and in a month's time I will be without a paycheck. 

If any of you know of a school that needs a Latin/Greek teacher, pm me, please!

I'm sorry.

It must not have been the "best" job for you.  God knows, even if we don't.

Something better will show up.  Have faith!

You will be in my prayers!

Lord, have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
