Natalie (Nellie)Praying for the family and friends of Natalie Evans. She was a friend of mines whom I met as a co worker on my previous job. Natalie went home to be present with the Lord last Thursday October 29th. She was 40 years old. Although she had left the job we shared together a year prior to my leaving, her legacy along with mine’s remains there. As I look at the end of the path of life we shared, I can’t help but to reflect on where it began. 12 individuals got off the same ship to board a newly created department and deliver a newly created web based portal and help desk. There are only 4 remaining of that original crew. In the beginning, we thought are connections were really about the job we were chosen to do. How little did we know that it really was about the God we serve and his greater will at work! I was terminated from that job of 7 years, after 9 months, still waiting for my new ship to come in. More importantly, I ask the Lord to let it be his will in whatever it is that lies in store for me. Glory to God, Natalie’s ship has finally come! I thank God almighty that he blessed both us to know and love each other and share with each other how He had blessed us both. R.I.P. My sister and friend, Ms. Natalie Evans!

    Linda, you know I know something about waiting for a new ship. I was fired from my job of 13 yrs. This past summer was full of anxiety. My friend lost her job too and we were hurting. There is something about mid-life that makes losing your job unexpected. I always had faith, though; and a calmness about it. Then I would let doubt creep in and get scared all over again.

    Now, I find in my new job, I was always meant to be in this place. I didn’t know it at the time and it was a scary journey, but now I am both surprised and at peace in my new job.

    Praise God! I am happy that you are at peace in your new job! What a double blessing! Thank you so much for sharing this experience. Your story is an incredible example of, while our human condition will allow doubt and fear to creep in, our faith will not let them settle. Having faith that everything would be alright is what brought you through and to your new job. There are times I experience a little doubt and fear as well, but thanks to you, I can reflect on your story and be reminded to just keep the faith!
