Employed by Ritz Camera

My job interview went very well yesterday. At first the manager told me she'd start me at $8/hour but when I said I was looking to make $12/hour she bumped my hourly to $10/hour and assured me that with sales commissions I should be able to make my desired additional $2/hour. I'm not sure when my starting day will be but I am looking forward to it. My only concerns now rest with my dying car. I hope it lasts long enough for me to either replace the engine and transmission, or until I can afford another car. Please pray everything will work out without the car breaking down on me.

Amen! I'll be praying about your car. God will work it all out. Of course, it's harder to believe and trust that God will work it all out than it is to say that God will work it all out, but He will.

Scott, Congratulations on the Job. I'm glad the Lord is providing for you financially.

I'll keep you car issue in my prayers

Thanks Kelley, Connie, and Cody... why do all of your names end with a variation of 'e'? Is there something about my blog that attracts people with names ending in 'ie' 'ey' 'y' etc.? (:

Maybe I should consider using my nickname 'Scotty' that way I'll fit in!

heh... I only fit into that category if you use some of my nicknames...
but I'll be praying!
I know that starting a new job isn't fun...
and car troubles are not fun at all

Scotty? *ahem* No....

Thanks Ro! Actually I am looking forward to starting at Ritz. I know photography well and I've worked such a variety of jobs that it has become second nature. The car... well, I think it will last me a while longer. Thank you for your prayers!

That's good then!

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
