My last post told of my very “green,” thoroughly-embarrassing experience at my first “real” job which I believe showed how the Lord moved me into a path I would never have dreamed of. From washing dishes for an invalid lady to being secretary for the Chief of Services for the Blind.

As green as I was, I’m sure you wonder if I held the job. Well, I did. I remained at that job for about 8 years and it was a great satisfaction to me. I was there until I resigned to move to Colorado for four years.  During that time I went back to college.  When I returned to OKCity I began my teaching career.  

You see if the Lord puts you in a place it will likely turn out well for “master and servant,” whose relationship guidelines are set in Colossians 3:22-4:1.  I think of that relationship as a standard for employer/employee.

 I love Psalm 37:6 “He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn…” I guess that means he will toot your horn for you if it needs to be tooted! Lily or lilac, petunia or pansy, daisy or dandelion, grow where he plants you.

Now why would I mention dandelions? Because some of us are dandelions, like it or not. Paul spoke of vessels of honor and dishonor (Romans 9:21). Whatever the status, if it is designed by Jesus, it will be good for you and others. Follow Jehovah-rohi as you Go and Grow with Jesus this Sabbath Day.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
