For those that are unaware, I'm no longer at Roswell Park. Due to restructuring and the like in the department I was employed in, I was let go two weeks ago.
First things first: I leave with no hard feelings and am grateful for the 14+ years I spent there. So many great memories and friendships were forged on that campus...
It's time for a new chapter though.
So, yes, THIS IS A GOOD THING. I've been praying every day for over a year that God would somehow allow me the chance to devote myself to this website full-time. It's what I feel I am called to do, what I was made to do, and with an amazing, supportive wife beside me, I am (we are) going to DO IT.
God knew that, as a provider for my family, I was never going to have the guts to take that first step... so He was gracious enough to take it for me. :) Now it's just my job to trust Him as I take steps 2 through infinity... and I do.
Whether this eventually succeeds as my sole vocation or not, I'm excited to give it a try. And at the very least I now have the chance to get this out of my system. I don't want to be wondering in 20 years if I could have ever made this work.
I'm going to attack this new opportunity and have as much of an impact as the Lord will allow through the concept of offering sports merchandise as a means to help people in their darkest hours.
Thank you for your prayers, kind words, and all that stuff. NOW GO BUY A SHIRT!
