Disappointment

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Yes, we have all heard that, but do we really listen? Today we learned that really is pretty good advice. Brent and I have been getting excited about some possibilities in our life while still waiting to hear if it would become reality, and today we found out that it isn’t going to work out. At least not at this time, and possibly not ever.

Someday, we may understand a reason. But for now we are left with the disappointment of broken dreams. Maybe this is why God tells us through His word that we should not worry about tomorrow. Then we would have all the nice surprises with fewer disappointments. We are not very good about being patient and waiting for God. This is something on which we really need to work.

So, for now, we will regroup and refocus. While we continue on our journey of learning to wait, we are so thankful for the blessings He has already given us. We have each other, we have a beautiful daughter, we have loving extended families and we have wonderful friends. And we trust that the plans God has for us are good.
