have you ever been a weird funk? like where things just totally didn't go your way, like, at all? that's kinda where i'm at. i'm ok with not getting the house. i know and fully trust that god has our perfect house out there somewhere. and i prayed and asked him to protect us. whether that meant getting outbid in the multiple offer "war" we were in, or allowing the house to meet our needs. he answered that, and i'm thankful. i'm still bummed, but thankful because i know he has something else for us. its still hard to wait even longer. we've been living with my parents for 9 months, 9 MONTHS!! but houses are popping up every day so i am hopeful, but......*sigh* it was a huge bummer today. can anybody relate? i'm just done living with my parents. i want my own space, i miss decorating and organzing and sewing. i really miss sewing. i feel like me with my legs and arms cut off. well that's kind of a weird analogy, but you get it right? ugh. "i will walk by faith, even when i cannot see. because this broken road prepares your will for me. " -Jeremy Camp, Walk by faith. this song spoke volumes to me at a time in my life when we were first married, living in another city and i was miserable but i knew we were supposed to be there at that time, but i trusted god had a plan even thought i couldn't see it. and now, 8 years later, that same song still speaks to me.
so here's to life's paths, journeys lost and journeys found, and a really good zinfandel! ;)
