A hot date


Look at those blissfully employed faces. Not a care in the world.

Last Friday night, before this whole unemployment debacle, Zak and I redeemed his Christmas gift certificate for a Chinese Fusion class at a local culinary studio.

It was a fabulous time, even if we did only end up with the assignment of making Green Tea Ice Cream (we would have rather made the Cashew Chicken-YUM!). We were complaining to each other at first, but obviously couldn't even handle that recipe because Zak let it curdle on the stove. Embarrassingly, we had to ask for all of the ingredients again and start over. Thankfully, it was dessert, so everyone else in class wasn't aware of our mistake. If anyone ever wants Green Tea ice cream, we know how NOT to make it!

In job news, we continue to receive leads and apply to companies. But to be honest, today I was feeling quite anxious about our financial situation. My friend Kerry sent me a talk given by President Monson (the president of the LDS Church) recently. It was so timely. Thank you Kerry.

I loved this quote:

"Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith."
What a wonderful promise.

He also quoted a poem by M. Louise Haskins that really touched me:

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than [a] light and safer than a known way.”

What a fun date idea, even if you learned how not to do something! :)
You are in our prayers. You are doing an amazing job at being positive and putting your trust in the Lord. Will continue to keep our eyes and ears open for you! Good luck!
