New Job
« on: October 26, 2010, 02:36:23 PM »
Glory to God that after close to 21 months of drawing unemployment, I'm heading back to work tomorrow on a 12-month contract to test printer software for Xerox. Now I need the grace to get back in the flow of working a 40-hour-a-week job, since I've picked up some bad habits while looking for work (like sleeping in until 10:00 in the morning). Additionally, from the time I draw my last unemployment check this week until the day I draw my first full paycheck on Nov. 25--I'll be getting paid twice per month--the pickin's are going to be mighty slim. (The first paycheck in November will be only for the three days I'm scheduled to work this week.)
Not all who wander are lost.

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Thanks be to God. I wish you well.
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
