But here we are at Monday and, although my sleeping patterns haven’t changed, I’m feeling a lot more positive. I really need a vacation. That is the truth. I’m tired and I need a break. Coming soon to a calendar near you!
Last week I had an unusual new/old experience. I’ve been on many job interviews in my day, but I’ve never been the one doing the interviews … Last week I was one of 4 on a panel as we started interviewing for the receptionist position available here at the church. My one and only experience of being interview by four people was completely intimidating, so I know how the ladies felt that we set through there paces.
Well actually – it may not have been that bad for the ladies. Four smiling faces, one of which was talkative Pastor (about everything but the specifics of the job) – nothing but smooth sailing. Wouldn’t you say?
One lady took it like a trooper. She seemed completely at home and ready to rumble. The other lady … not so much. She sat there with her arms crossed the entire time, and wouldn’t respond with question, nor would she ask any. Very odd, if you ask me.
We have one more lady to interview tomorrow. She’s already a known commodity to the church, and we’re down one interviewer (Pastor is away on holidays). So I’m thinking its going to go pretty smoothly. I already have a good idea of who I’d like to see hired, but we’ll wait it out and see what God would like to happen.
On Friday night I had a short, but timely and uplifting, telephone conversation with Ms. Catie-dids. Thank you Catie, I’m glad we finally connected. I am looking forward to more lengthy conversations soon.
Also – I received a lovely e-mail from Claire Bug. Thank you Claire, once again you had many wise words to share. I’ll have a response soon.
