Bad News and Good News
I was recently laid off.
Marketing is not the safest job to have during these down economic times. And I paid the price for having it.
I was laid off during my two week study of "faith" on the blog. You can decide for yourself whether that was a sovereign act or simply sleigh track logic that makes me see it as more than mere coincidence.
A couple weeks later, after getting some perspective, I am excited about the future. Especially for news I just found out today!
My sister-in-law is finishing up her last semester of graphic design school and has decided, for her senior project, to create my book idea, "Why Every President Sucked: America's Endless Pursuit for a Divine Man."
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you are probably aware of this series in progress. So, thanks to her, this project will become a fully-designed coffee table book soon, and I am excited about what possibilities that might produce.
While it is often hard to see the light in the storm, I reach out anyway.
