سلام لكم في هذا اليومLately, life has been rather difficult for me. These past couple weeks, it's seemed as if everything has been going wrong at once. I remember earlier this year, when everything with our house and our car and our lives that could go wrong, was. Now, it's been our physical health: Flipper broke her foot, so she's not been quite as...flipp-y lately, and we had a stomach bug going around that wrecked whatever semblance of a schedule we'd managed to whip up.
'Twas not so fun. But thankfully, except for the broken foot, it seems that things are coming back to normal, or whatever passes for it at my house.
But I'm still discouraged. You see, in the midst of all that, very little has been happening with my trip.
Earlier, I felt like God was really blessing my trip; I made twice the estimated amount at my bake sale. But now, it's going on the third week without a major donation. Just...nothing. Ten dollar amounts come filtering in in change jars. I have a sneaking suspicion that there are a couple people waiting for me to only have $200 left to raise so they can sweep in and give it to me...but I'm not going to get there if it...Gah, I'm complaining now. And I shouldn't. But please be in prayer for me. I know God will provide. Our pastor preached an excellent message Sunday morning on just this issue, about God supplying all our needs. And I know he will.
It's sometimes just difficult to remember.
