Sometimes getting where I'm going in life takes a little longer than usual! We put a down-payment on a home down in December... the 21st to be exact. There was an expected close date of January 21st, but the deed could not be found. I'd heard those stories on the news and sort of snort giggled when I heard such nonsense! Well, snort no more! Five months later the missing deed has been located! Hallelujah!
What all has happened that would have made a major move difficult? Well to begin with, major health issues with my most precious and beloved mom. She fell 3 days after Christmas and majorly broke her right ankle. Daily trips to the hospital and then nursing rehab ended February 25 with a major stroke and her death 3 days later. I sat with her for all those days and when the morphine no longer worked I sang a praise and worship song to her, over and over again for hours. For those of you who know it... Step by Step ("I will follow You all of the way") was my reworded version. She actually would raise her arms upward in praise and try to sing along. Treasured memory.
Next came a 2 month battle with the sinus infection from (well you know) and then an infected tooth just followed last week by a root canal then a new crown today on another tooth. I'm working to get all this health stuff out of the way for the big move.
Anyway. I'm no longer snorting at the news... and I realize now that the snorting sound I was making was just due to the sinus infection and swollen sore tooth. LOL.
God's timing has always astounded me. He is looking out for me long before I even know I need looking out for. Smile. ...and for that I am ever so thankful!
