A job

Remember when I told you about my friend who's daughter was having a baby?

He turns 2 months old tomorrow.

His Mommy needs to go back to work a little bit, but she has this adorable, great smelling little bundle of joy.

The thought of putting him in daycare was just too scary. Her Mom said that she had a person in mind to maybe watch him a few hours a day a couple times a week. She asked her daughter if she could pick one person to do that who would she pick?

They both said my name!

I got the call the other day. I said yes without even having to think twice about it. I even will be paid a little bit, which I tried to say no to, but she insisted.

A job. For me.

Someone is going to pay me to sit and cuddle a baby! I can't even begin to describe the smile on my face and in my heart.

And the fact that I will be able to sit and pray over this little guy just brings me great joy.

Sweet smelling babies make me happy, as does not having to get up with them in middle of the night :)

You are incredible!!! I am envious of your outlook and really just stand in awe. (My youngest 3 are all under 3 and I am ashamed to say that I struggle with seeing them as blessings.) I pray God richly manifests Himself to you through this new "job" and allows you to bless a child and a family who are dear to God.

I came over here to say thankyou for your encouraging comments on my blog. I don't frequently get to visit other blogs but I was so humbled by your comment that I wanted to say thank you. You are a blessing and I pray God pours abundant grace upon your life today.
