hoping and waiting
So we are both getting very ready for the phone to ring … for something to arrive in the mail. We keep hoping and praying that something shows up from Rome for a job in Rome that will start before Christmas.
I know Christmas is not about the gifts you can give or that you get. But after almost 10 months of not spending for anything extra, waiting on things we do need because we just can’t do it with the funds we have right now, it would be nice to be able to get a few of those things.
Last night we joked around that the “perfect thing” would be to get the notice today that he has a job, starting December1st. Yes it would mean we would be apart for a good portion of the month of December, but then we could get a few of those things we need to for tax purposes before the end of the year. And maybe, just maybe a few of the things we have really been wanting to make life easier.
I don’t know. I don’t know what God’s plan is, we are trying to be open, trying to be patient. It is not easy. Especially with two little girls who are trying their limits it feels at every opprotunity.
ps… I’ll apologize to whoever I got this picture from, I abcolutely love it and it fits today, but I don’t have it marked where I got it from (or if I do it is in my ACDsee software trial that has run out – one of the purchases for tax reasons), and google is not working so I can’t try to look it up right now. I will I promise! :>)
