Vision ObscuredLooking for a job is hard work. Like really hard – mentally keeping track of every lead; spiritually finding new reserves of faith as each day passes; physically resisting the urge to over-work and focus on staying rested – it’s just a lot…and frankly more than I expected.

There’s also something about not knowing where the path leads. Each step requires more focus; more awareness and before you know it, the fog threatens to envelope you completely.

Which is why you must have adopt the buddy system…a relational rope around your waist. I consider myself quite lucky to have a wonderful wife and a venerable army of friends who are making sure my path is lit. I have never felt so supported and loved and have been reminded that the unknown is not a journey to be taken alone.

So, if you’re reading this and have held the rope at one point over the past two weeks, thank you, thank you, thank you.

For everyone else, this might make more sense if you read THIS and THIS.
