I guess I'm not alone in my disappointing search for a library job. My friend Libby has been looking for a job for 2 years. She's hoping to be a public librarian...and subs for the Rochester area libraries. My friend Charlie had a few interviews this summer and was even called back for a second interview...and she has gotten nothing but rejection letters. My friend Diane has had a couple of interviews this summer and has gotten passed over as first choice. I have had three interviews this summer without a bite.
I don't know what to think. What do I do next, Lord? Where is your still small voice that is supposed to direct my path? Is it there and I just can't hear it? Am I refusing to hear it somehow?
The photo is one I took of two boys in Ecuador playing happily with a deflated and beat up soccer ball on a muddy lot. They don't need the latest and greatest equipment to find joy. To have a real soccer ball is actually quite impressive there.
