But, the upside of all of this is that it is never boring! Things are always changing. I am with lots of different children. And also work with many different people. The different schedules also mean that some days I don't have to leave the house until much later. And some days I get home earlier. I also always have one day off each week. Now that is a BIG upside to this job. Once again, it is all about perspective.
Today I saw this on Facebook. I really like this because again, it is about perspective. In this case, when you read it down the page, you see one message. And when you read UP the page, you see a totally different message.
This is another great reminder to be looking UP as well as READING UP! I like this! There is a totally different meaning to these words when you read them in the correct order. What a great reminder.
Jesus, today I am so thankful for the job that you provided for me. Thank you for showing me the importance of being flexible and celebrating the UPSIDE of my job. Holy Spirit, I love that you remind us to keep looking up in so many interesting ways. Thank you for this visual that reminded me again that perspective is so important. Help us all to keep our eyes on Jesus even as we are in our day to day life. Jesus, give us all a new upward perspective as we go into 2014. Amen
