Waiting... and being silent

Ok… so if you know me, you know that most of my life I have loved structure. I love the tradition of the old church, because there is something to be said for knowing what’s going to happen next. But never let the tradition squelch the Holy Spirit. The funny thing is that this post has nothing to do with church, but it’s just an example.

If you understand that, you understand that I’m seriously trying not to lose my mind with a tore up kitchen. You must also know that I love my kitchen, even when it was ugly. Even at its ugliest.

Yesterday I came home to underlayment being down on the landing and the kitchen! Woo hoo!! Tile soon!! The opening is being prepped for completion. Its coming along until… Home Depot ordered the wrong laminate… oops!! Ok. Really, not the end of the world. Will anyone die? Nope. Is it annoying? Yes. But really, seriously, it was just a mistake. I think the guy on the phone thought I would go off on him, but I didn’t., it truly was an error. How about we just have a little grace… and so… I did. Ended up with a credit because they charged me for the more expensive laminate too, but I didn’t know there was a price difference. So woo hoo!!

And then… someone asks me to do them a favor because someone else couldn’t. Did I want to? No. But I said I would. Then while I was doing something else, the original person did it, but no one told me, so I got knee deep in it, had to double check something, and it was done. In my head I was thinking (very loudly), “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?! SERIOUSLY???”

And everyone thinks I’m gonna lose it on someone, and I might have dropped some F bombs prior to all this, but I didn’t. I just simply breathed, sighed, and moved on. But this I’m telling you… I don’t know how long this will last – meaning me not freaking out… but I’m trying. And somedays I’m more trying than others.

Thank God for nutritional supplements, or someone might be hurt.  And I'd be spending the next 5 days telling them, and God how sorry I am...

Micah 7:7 But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me
