Requested by: Fleur-de-lis Dauphine on 6/23/18

Thank you Jesus for the Divine Plan being made clear in my life.  My employer is in reorg.  I was offered a retirement.  A brief note.. I divorced in 2017 and my husband has a QDRO on my pension.  With the package offered he would receive a portion of that also.  I gave him the house which he recently sold and will be able to repay money to me he owes me.  I felt I gave too much to the marriage monetarily.  I didn't feel confident with the pkg offered because of the above.  There were wasn't any decision to make because there was no guarantee for a job if I stayed - the company is going to cut 3,000 people.  I am grateful for the package I am getting.  It is small compared to some of the others.  I don't need much ?. Others do.  I need God and my dog Ruby.  I will be able to move back to my home state of Missouri.  I plan to make my roots at the Lake.  I missed home so much.  I never felt a  part of the east coast.  I found many wonderful people.  I want to fit in - it is hard because I don't drink and I am different.  My family has passed and only living relatives I have are a cousin and aunt.  I just celebrated my 65th birthday - no one called.  There was a nice party at work for me.  I've always wanted a family because my family today is distant.  God worked a miracle in the timing of the selling of the house for my ex and my soon retirement.  I am totaling amazed at the timing.  He is there for me working special present needs for me.  I am so grateful.  I pray that he brings the right people in my life at the right time.  Protection.  I look forward to visiting the Shrine often.  Thank you Jesus.
