The waiting continues. The patience is being tested.
I just got off the phone with my District Manager. He chose me to be the new store manager at Family Christian in Fayetteville. Woohoo ... oh wait, not quite.
He sent a proposal to the regional vice president for me to be the store manager. Because I lack a ton of retail experience, the regional vp wants me to go through a second interview with the HR person in Grand Rapids. He also wants to see two more weeks of my performance as interim manager before he makes a decision.
This might be the answer that I was not prepared - emotionally or spiritually - to handle.
And so the waiting continues.
