Normally I love rollercoasters. I am the first one to say, "Again, again!" But the rollercoaster ride of real life is a little more difficult. Yesterday, Scott felt as if he was feeling a little better. Today he has regressed. All he does is sleep. Which I realize is wonderful for his healing but the change in my life is hard to handle some days, or should I say hours. The good news is that Noelle is back in school. I think she is just about caught up with her school work. She still has a cough and is looking forward to Saturday so that she can sleep in!
The most frustrating part is in relation to our adoption. We were (are) so close to being on an official waiting list. I have the letters all typed and ready to go. Then we decided to discuss expanding our vision, as discussed earlier. Well, it is hard to have those kind of discussions when you have pneumonia. Apparently, anyway, because I have certainly tried! Everyday he says, "I promise, tomorrow." Many tomorrows have come and gone, OK, three tomorrows. But the days turn into weeks so rapidly and I hate the fact that we are causing the waiting at this point!
I keep thinking back to this kids album my sister used to listen to all the time when we were little. (Yes, I said album and she is six years younger than me so that's probably why I remember it.)
"Have patience, Have patience. Don't be in such a hurry. When you get impatient you only start to worry. Remember, remember. That God is patient too. And think of all the times when others have to wait on you."
Well, it is better with the music and the animals. Guess you had to be there.
I would love to have my Bible right now, but it is the room where my husband is sleeping. But in Philippians it says something about not be anxious for anything and giving it to the Lord! My memory is failing me. (And after remembering that silly song. Shame on me!
