Future changes

So my husband still has not found a job. It's been around two months now and still no real leads. This has caused us to realize we might have to move for him to find a job, since he has applied to most of the jobs in his field in our city, and still has not found one.

This has caused him to look into the Air Force. When he first told me of the idea of joining the AF I will admit that I kind of freaked. I, like most wives, don't want my husband to go off to war. We looked into it though and the benefits seem really nice. We went to our local recruting office and talked to a man there, who should be calling my husband tomorrow with more information and everything.

I can feel myself growing to the idea, and its a little scary. I'm not sure yet if this is what God has for us, and if it is it will be a big adventure. I never really seriously considered I would be a wife to a man in the armed forces. I don't think my husband is to keen on leaving his current friends, but it's our only lead for a job at the moment.

If he does go into the AF, it will only be because God is telling us that is where He wants us right now. So, if your a praying kind of person, please keep us in your prayers. Like I said, I can feel God putting my heart more at ease about it, but my husband is the one who really needs the peace of mind that this is what God wants for us.

Thanks for listening to me rant about this. This whole thing has been on my mind for the past week and I've been praying about it as often as I can. Thanks for your prayers! If you know anything about the AF good or bad, please let me know. :)

Getting some advice!

Hey all!

A while back I sent an e-mail to Jodi Meadow's, a lady who reads slush for a literary agency and she was willing to give her thoughts on your query if you e-mailed it to her. I did, and a few months later she wrote what she thought of it. Now, at the time I sent it to her I sent her my first draft of my query, and I have changed it since then, but it is good to see and hear her thoughts as to what my query could have done better. Here's the link. Check it out and let me know what you think. You might even want to send her yours as well. :)
