Pharmacy Notes

*BIG sigh*

We made it!

Yesterday we 'went live' with a new computer system in the pharmacy. There has been a lot of anticipation for this move, and I was nervous as I approached the doors. Usually I am praying that God would use me to be a blessing, that He would help me see things, that I would be His instrument. Yesterday I was praying I would simply survive the day!
Honestly, the transition wasn't as bad as I had expected.
Several 'trainers' were available (And I think they'll be around for a week, or so. *whew!*) to answer questions and show us how to navigate the new system.
But at one moment - when I was in a particularly stressful situation - God reminded me that the One I really need was with me. And I remembered that He'll stay with me for all of eternity - not just a week, or so.
What happened?
Well, we were attempting to figure out what happened to a prescription, trying a couple different approaches on the computer, unable to ignore the long line of customers waiting for assistance - when I got to the point in the transaction where I needed to verify the person's birth date. I saw the date on the screen and smiled hugely as she chimed, "Eleven eleven."

I love it when God encourages me like that. Love that HE works in the pharmacy, too.

1111. So cool. If I have time I'll email you my treadmill story...God added to it today :)

Glad the transition wasn't too stressful yesterday.

Love these pharmacy posts, Karen. Because I can identify with almost every one of them. At some point in my career as a pharmacist, I have had almost the same experience. This computer transition post is no different.

Love how God is using you and growing you in this job.

Mary - I'll watch for that email!

Leah - Thanks. It's fun to see Him 'at work' when I'm at work! *grin*

No way! The other day I was doing something and 11:11 was right there before me. I thought of you and lifted up a prayer. You know how you do for me with "the grace is enough..."now with 11:11 I do for you! Have a great weekend!

Leslie - Way! *grin*
Thanks for praying.

Amanda said...

ditto to Amanda's comment! (exactly! I was going to say the EXACT same thing! EVEN with the exclamation point count!)

Amanda - God is good. That's just what it comes down to. *grin*

Gianna - You and Amanda hanging out too much, so you're starting to think like one another? LOL!
