Too soon, God?

So, my plan was to have the house on the market by the end of next week, beginning of the following at the latest. Apparently God has other plans. The majority of our work we need to do is outside and we were planning on having this Saturday (except for a well placed - can you feel the sarcasm? - baseball game at 11:45) to do it. It's supposed to rain. All day. How am I supposed to paint two exterior doors in the rain? Huh? And how is Jon supposed to finish the deck? Tell me?

In time it will get done, I know.

It's hard, but I have this verse to lean on:

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him…."

Psalm 37:7 NIV

I'm horrible at patience. Maybe this is God teaching me a lesson!

Random Fact of the Day: My favorite summer drink is a Skinny Caramel Mocha Frappuccino with Whip (that's why I get skinny!) from Starbucks.

I can relate just a little...my goal was the superbowl =) That is a good verse! Trusting God's timing is best, I agree that this is very hard and I am struggling myself! My new goal is to move before my washer totally breaks!!!

oh the joys of getting a house ready to put on the market-

I was BTDT a year ago- we put a contract on the house up here 2 weeks before our house was ready to go on the market-it went on as planned on April 15= but on the 14th- the painters, the landscaper and merry maids were all working on top of each other to get everthing finished! it was crazy!

my source of comfort during all of that was remembering that God already knew who was going to buy our house and when...it was helpful when I remembered to remember that!

where are you moving to? do you have a new place yet?
