Drum Roll Please

So I quit my job yesterday.

And as some of you might remember from my post on June 2 (see it here), it’s been all I could do to hang in there until now. I have accepted a position with the UNCG College of Arts & Sciences, in the Assistant Dean’s office, doing pre-grant work. This is a cause for…


My boss got back from her vacation yesterday, and I politely waited until about 11 to tell her. She took it well – sort of a mixture of rage and sadness. It’s what I expected.

What I was not expecting, however, is the reaction I have gotten from everyone else. Disappointment. Sadness. Praise. Hugs. Even TEARS! What’s that about? I didn’t know I had made such an impact on these folks! Kinda makes me feel guilty for leaving. Kinda makes me wonder if I am making a mistake. Kinda.

I guess more than anything, it reminds me that there is never a moment when others are not watching, and that’s why it’s so important to live my life to bring glory to God as much as I can. Whether or not I am working. Hmm… Something for me to ponder….

James 3:13 - If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.

Matthew 5:16 - In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
