I've been working at Stone Falls of Ada, the newest luxury apartment community in Grand Rapids, for about a year. It's been a good ride. I've met a lot of really great people. I've made more money than I thought I would, and in this economy one cannot complain when he has gainful employment. The opportunity to work at Stone Falls came along at the right time for me. But, as it goes, a new opportunity presented itself a few weeks ago.
I'm still not really sure if I found the new opportunity, or if the new opportunity found me...but however it happened, I'm really glad it did. I start work on Monday with the Grand Rapids Housing Commission. I'm certain that God's hand has been all over this. When I first saw the job posting, I didn't think I had a shot at it, but I submitted my resume anyway. Two days after I submitted my resume, there was interview scheduled. About a week and a half after the interview (mixed with a few phone calls regarding references, etc.) I was offered the position. The position offers better pay and better benefits, but beyond that I believe it lines up more with my heart to care for those who are less fortunate than I. So, I'm anxiously awaiting Monday morning when I get to dive into a brand new opportunity pregnant with new challenges and new rewards.
