And Then There Was Silence

Work stuff.

I've been in Miss Shop the yesterday and today. The upside of this is that I don't have to listen to crappy Christmas music. Instead, we have cool hip music with a good stack of it from JJJ. The downside is that it's taken a bit longer for the other staff to warm up to me, because they're all my age, and people my age think they have something to prove. I've been in the fitting rooms, and MY GOODNESS PEOPLE! How freakin hard is it to take all your clothes out of the cubicle and hand them to me or even put stuff back on the hanger once you've tried it on!? Apparently very hard. Also, leaving a pile of clothes makes it easier to steal things because the items get "lost" in the pile. Quite a few things were stolen today. Not that there's much I can do bout it, but I actually noticed tags on the floor, and even a security tag that had been taken off.

*sigh* maybe I'll get out the foot spa and give myself one tonight. I don't have anything on tonight do I? Also, I have 5 shifts next week. I'm kinda pleased because it means money (yay) but also disappointed because it means work (boo). LOL. But work isn't too hard. I have 2 shifts in kidswear and 3 in a dressing room on the ground floor, which means crazy stress work!! boo.

D'ya'know I have a new watch? I am very pleased with it. It's gold and has a black face. It's simple, practical and elegant! 'Tis a good watch, =)

I am weary now, but in a good mood. Work again tomorrow, boo. :)

On Prayer

was thinking on the way to work today, and doing some praying. In amongst some other prayers, I randomly asked God for tough feet so they wouldn't pain me as I'm working on my feet 9-5. It occurred to me that if God is going to answer my prayer, then he's going to give me blisters!!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. James 1:2-5

My feet are hurting more than usual at the end of the day today, so perhaps God is working on my prayer.

In related news, it strikes me how God answers prayer. He is really concerned about the smallest things; even the very hairs of your head are all numbered (Matt 10:30)
I've prayed for friends in the past, and it's only been recently that He's answered those prayers and some of my friends have come to know Him. Also, sometimes I'll pray for something very unimportant, and admitting to God that it's very trivial, and the only reason I'm bringing this to Him in prayer is because I know he has power over everything, and if He doesn't do anything about it then I won't be cut, but I might as well pray for it... and He answers it!

What a joy it is to pray to a God who listens and loves me and works everything out in his timing! Furthermore, I don't have to pretend to be anything else when praying, but can bring all things before Him!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
