The Entry I Have Been Dreading

Kevin did not get the job.

We are very disappointed and I wanted to blog something profound and inspirational but instead I am just really sad. I am sad for my husband and for my children. I am sad for myself. I am sad that I am sad, because I know what God spoke to us. I am sad that I can't make life into what I think it should be and yet I am glad that I don't have to worry about spinning all of those plates and can rest in the fact that God is sovereign.

I wish I had happier news, but for now, well, I guess we are back to The Waiting Game.

Oh, Laney, I am so sorry. I will be praying for comfort for you and Kevin, and also that God will quickly reveal the better thing He has for you.

I am so, so sorry for you and your family Laney! That is hard news when everything was looking so good.

I know it will be said many times over but you have to believe that this is because God has something bigger and better in store for you.

Keeping that in mind, you are allowed to grieve and be sad and feel miserable if you want to. You know you can cry on our shoulders anytime!

I will pray for your peace.

I am sorry to hear that. I know how you feel...Doug had an interview a couple of weeks ago that her felt really good about and he didn't get the position. I personally think they confused him with someone else.

Chin up!

Laney, {{hugs}}. We had a lot of these to post - or would have, if I'd been blogging three years ago - one thing Zorak has learned by heart is that God will direct us where He wants us to go, but then He will also make sure we do it in His time. Not fun, but better. The other thing he's learned is, "There may be a lot of 'no' responses, but it only takes one 'yes' - keep seeking the path and the timing God wants for you. We will be praying for you.

Sending love and hugs from California too. I am very sad for you too, Laney. I know how much this meant to you all.
You know the old saying, "When God closes a door he opens a window." I'll keep praying for another window to open.

love dawn

Laney, could you imagine if you had gotten that house? God knows what's he doing. ;-) I'm sad for you because I know it's a disappointed day. But I'm excited for what God *does* have in store for you guys because you may not know WHAT it is now but you have to know it will be better...

I'm glad you got a vacation out of it at least.

Hugs...

That STINKS! ((Laney)) I am interested to see what God's plan is for your family. I wonder how long it will be before we are thinking back to this time, going, oh...so that's why.

I'm sorry Laney! All this means it that you have something you need to stay here in NJ for. I am sure one day you'll get to move and live where your heart wants to.
