One More Miracle

Sometimes I ask Jeffree, "Why are we so blessed?" He always answers, "I don't know."

Why did we find each other? Why did he get a job in Idaho so we could be together my last year of school?

Why did I get to do my student teaching right in Rexburg? Why did we have so many blessings?

I asked him again yesterday. We'd both prayed so hard for this one, but so many others are doing the same. I found out yesterday, and I cried. Tears of joy and relief and excitement and overwhelming humility at receiving this huge blessing and amazing opportunity.

I am a Madison Bobcat. I got a position teaching math at Madison High School. I LOVE the other math teachers there and I'm so excited to learn more from them. Students in Rexburg are more than ideal. And mostly, I don't have to commute, Jeffree and I have the same holidays and inservice. We are so excited for this opportunity for me to grow as a teacher and for the chance to save some money for our future.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! That's what my heart has been saying since I found out. And we'll say it again. Thank you to so many who kept us in their prayers. I felt extra strength in the interview and never gave up hope through the whole process because of that. New job, new school, new blessings, and new opportunity!
