perplexed but not despairing

Don't ya just love that phrase. The Lord has highlighted it to me in a big way this week. I don't think I have ever noticed it before. It's smashed in between 'pressed on every side but not crushed' and 'persecuted not abandoned'. It was so encouraging to think that the wise men and followers of Jesus sometimes wondered what was up with whatever was going on. (that's 2 Corinthians 4 by the way).

On another note, we just had a delicious time with our friends from Airdrie whose house we are in the process of buying. Our current plan is to rent out our house and finalize the deal on their house. So if y'all know of 4 singles of the same gender that want a lovely house to rent, we've got one... If you've been praying for us in this house adventure keep praying! If you haven't been, please start!

Sparrow, see what you have to look forward to in moving adventures - perplexed but NOT despairing! Lots of great character building stuff!

Lani, How did you know I needed encouragement on this VERY thing this morning? Oh, I was down, yesterday. But today is a new day, and God is in charge.

I will pray for your situation this morning! It's so obvious that God is in control of other people's lives...why is it so hard to see it in our own? :)

Just reading a great book (fiction) where the characters lives are obviously intersected by the divine. Somedays I would really like that kind of super obvious interaction with heaven. My husband tells me I have experienced it, I jsut forget too quickly....
