The story opens as a fifty something woman is informed she will no longer be working for her employer of 27 years. The adventures that follow are funny, sad, happy, but show her and those around her that there is indeed a plan.
Yes, this is now my life. Last Friday I was informed that my contract wouldn’t be renewed in July. No warning, no redirect, just no contract. Yesterday the same thing happened to a colleague across the state. Today we learned that as contract employees, our boss does not need a reason to recommend non renewal. We can file a grievance to try and change his mind…his boss has encouraged us to do so…really?! I’m a farm girl, I know what manure smells like!
Still, I am thankful for a friend who truly understands, even as I am sad that anyone else has to experience this.
God was not surprised by this…He has a plan for me, and while there are parts of the day when I’m still pretty angry and feeling betrayed, I am comforted by the knowledge that my Heavenly Boss knows exactly what I need. There are so many decisions to make in the next week…we covet your prayers for wisdom and clarity. We walk by faith.
