Thoughts on Future Employment

It's supposed to be 106 degree's today, so I am relaxing in my room with the fan on full blast. I have done a lot of reading (a favorite past-time), and unfortunately a whole lot of nothing on the computer. Earlier in the day I decided to listen to a CD from Mark Drake. I think I listened to two. It was nice sitting back and doing nothing while listening, something I need to do more often (Usually I do two things at once).

Later in the day something that SB asked me in a conversation about work hit me and then I felt compelled to really sit down and do, seriously. Which made me think of a statement I heard on the radio yesterday. Something about how God knows what we want even before we ask, but yet still wants us to bring it to Him. I lay on my bed and really give to God what my ideal employment situation would be. I could say this situation with FCCC was the beginning since I really didn't give it much thought when I took the job in the first place.

What AM I looking for
Co-workers who are friendly toward me, supportive of me being there
accessible for a wheelchair AND service dog
driving distance/ later rather than earlier start time (getting up at 6:30a.m. for a 9:00a.m. start time is rough, but I got used to it)
Inclusive (teaching children with and without disabilities in the same classroom)
Here in Montana if that's where God still wants me
(I'm sure more stufff will come to me later)

This last one has been on my mind a lot this past week sicne being let go, and frankly, it kinda scares me. So far I have no desire to go anywhere else to look for work other than here in Missoula, Montana. I have a church here, I have friends here, doctors, a gym... The thought of starting all over, makes me want to throw-up. I am having a hard time telling God that I will go anywhere He wants me to.

I love Montana.

    I believe God knows your special situation and how hard it would be to relocate. I sure He knows your heart and that you would do what he requires but I find it hard to believe God would want you anywhere but Mt. I think he has you there and has made it possible for you to live there independently
    for a reason so keep your heart and mind on God and I am sure he will direct your paths.
