Last day as a Crossroads Employee

Today marks the last day of my employment at Crossroads.  I think I've done a lot to make sure my various bases are covered as I leave.  For the last six years I've worked there I've had a constant cloud of unfinished tasks and open loops.  There's always more to be done.  So today when I loaded up the program I use to keep track of my tasks/projects/all that I realized it was weird to see I don't really have a whole lot of unfinished stuff.  It will be nice to have less responsibilities for a while, and to be able to pick and choose a little more of my ministry responsibilities since it won't be my job anymore.

Good news on the job front - I haven't landed an HR job yet but I do have a long-term sub job.  I'll be subbing at Washington for a teacher that had to retire mid-year starting Monday.  It's a pretty perfect setup because it's at the school I want to be at, I have 4 U.S. History classes and one social science elective class (not sure what it is, maybe Sociology), and 6th period prep which means I get to leave early.  Also since it's a long-term job I'll make a bit more money than I otherwise would.  It's pretty great that while I'm looking for another job I'll have this consistent income.  I will actually be teaching instead of just babysitting (the usual charge of subs) but I'm actually a little excited because it's stuff I'm interested in (my major was History with a focus on US History) with older students.

I'm praying for and with you in this transition. I'm excited that you'll be teaching students and not doing HR in an office somewhere. I think it has Kingdom potential for you. Rock that campus. I'll be praying for you and your family and the students you're ministering to.
