Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

I'm back...

I really wasn't sure if I wanted to keep blogging or not, but for some reason, I feel led to continue. What a Summer!! It has been very trying, but I have really learned a lot.
First, let me say that I am no longer at the cemetery. The people were great to work with and were very supportive. I found that the longer I was at the job, the more I enjoyed the industry. It was very emotionally rewarding to sit with grieving families and help them navigate the waters of preparing a funeral for a loved one. I received a lot of good feedback from both the families and the area funeral directors that I had opportunities to work with. Last week, after giving an inspiring speech to the sales staff about teamwork and helping each other write sales when we were out at a funeral or helping a customer, my manager deliberately snatched two contracts out from under me (while I was out doing a funeral)and wrote them for himself. It cost me about 900.00 in commission, and when I confronted him about it and he ran out of stupid excuses trying to justify what he did, he fired me. He stated that my employment there "just wasn't working out." I explained to him that I could not work for someone that I couldn't trust, and that's where my employment ended.
I have another option in the works and should know whether I have the new job or not on Monday. It's looking pretty good though.
God is good. He always has been and always will be. I'm not worried...He will provide.
