Long Time No Post...

I can’t believe it's been 3 months since my last post. Not that anyone reads this thing.

So, the new job is going well. Kind of. I'm trying to work out kinks with my boss and it's tough. I'm managing two stores and only getting paid what a good barista should make. I constantly feel like I'm on the edge of my patience, like when you were a kid ridding your bike on the sidewalk. Then you start to veer over to where the edge met the grass. I keep trying to go straight ahead, but it’s like I'm leaning one direction and trying to turn the other only to have my front tire fall into the groove and send me hurtling... I don't like hurtling. It has the very word "hurt" in it. I don't want to hurtle.
I'm faced with a decision; to either bite the bullet and keep working for half of what I'm worth, or go somewhere else. Yep... it's a fork. In the road. A chance to make the right decision and grow or the wrong decision and still grow. That’s the encouraging part. Regardless of what happens, I will grow from this.

I'm standing on this right now;
Colossians 1:9 For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience;

Coffee Fest was last week. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get my Mac back.
