I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.
Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
and his ears are attentive to their cry;
but the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
to blot out their name from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;
he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.
Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The LORD will rescue his servants;
no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
And so I went to the interview and: I think it went well!! I am confident and know I could do this job, do it well, and I think I'd enjoy it! The place had an excellent atmosphere.
The woman who interviewed me said that she'd call me either way. If I get a good call, it'll be telling me I'll have a second interview with another person at the company who I'd be working with directly.
After the interview I told my parents about how it went, and then called Ryan. The poor man, he was still at work: and it's midnight his time! There was a problem with the email server and he was working... he didn't get to go home until 2am! And he's a salaried employee, so he doesn't even get overtime. He'd been led to believe two months ago he'd get a raise if he took on twice the responsibility. They gave him the responsibility, but he's not gotten a raise. He's seriously considering leaving, though he's not decided yet.
After I got off the phone with him, my adrenaline from the interview was still coursing through me, so I decided to call another friend. I talked to Jennifer for the first time in a while. She's back with her boyfriend and they're getting serious. It just makes me think about what might be happening in the future. She's about to graduate with her Master's, which is awesome.
I'm in a really great mood and I'm just happy for everyone. I'm looking at friend's blogs and photos and stuff online and my heart is just swelling with love. I just want to reconnect with all my old friends, but it's hard because I keep thinking 'oh, I should call or facebook message her' when I can't... and then forgetting when I am online. I really have been feeling like God's been telling me to reconnect with old friend's and not let these precious connections fade away.
I'm going to be doing stuff to the blog soon, just as a warning. It'll be great. I'll give more details later.
