Conversations with God

"God, if I'm being perfectly honest, I have to say I'm a lot disappointed and a little angry with You."

He jumps right in because He knows exactly what I'm talking about. "Patience and trust. Remember?"

"But I've been patient. And I've been trusting," I whine.

"You're not being trusting right now. Remember Jeremiah 29:11?"

"I know, but..."

"But what?"

"But I've been praying. And I just finished my second week at Bright Futures. I thought we had a deal."

"I don't make deals."

"I know. Not an official deal, but I just kinda thought..."

"You can't earn the things you want. I will provide all that you need."

The family that looked at our house on Saturday was indeed the perfect family for this house. Unfortunately, the school system was not a perfect fit for them. I can't say I blame them...

Bummer! But at least you know that when you do get a buyer it really will be perfect. At least, the timing will. For you. Too bad we can't ever really see that until later - that hidnsight and all. ;o)

Or maybe the family will decide to homeschool? LOL!

You know what, Crossview? They WERE homeschoolers (elementary). I almost made a, er, suggestion in my follow-up email to them, but I refrained. 'Tis not my place, I suppose.

Well that IS odd that they based their decision on the local schools since they homeschool. Maybe they're thinking of quitting homeschooling?

So sorry it didn't work out. I can only imagine how disappointing that is. We'll keep praying!

I can soooooooooooo relate to how you feel. I was angry too and actually kind of hurt in a similar situation.

But, He does want the best for us. The waiting can be so hard.
