Miracles could be quicker

Last night at house group, we prayed about my work, and the kids, and.... Yes. The lot. We prayed for a miracle. Or a few. Lots. Today wasn't the day. But maybe tomorrow will be. Today was about as far from miraculous as you can get, actually. But then Moses probably thought that too, as he walked towards the Red Sea. And look what happened to him. Maybe I need a stick thingy. Or a wand. I do believe it is just as well that I am not teaching English, although that was mentioned this morning in a hopeful manner. I tried to ignore that part.

My life is complicated. And my phone has just beeped at me to tell me that the deadline for the Hospital No 2's response to my complaint is tomorrow. That means that they have to respond by tomorrow according to the rules. Hmmmm. We will see. Another miracle, maybe? Who knows.

I have just spent 3 hours here at home writing up the paperwork for the day. I have hardly spoken to my son. He cooked his own supper. And he is now out helping at Crusaders as I speak. I am feeling squished. And in need of a simple, uncomplicated life - at least for a little while.

Somehow, I don't think that is going to happen.

First I have to tell you, I've really enjoyed going back and reading all your answers to the questions you were asked. Imagine if you really could come to Colorado! Really, it's on the way to where Kelli lives. :-)

I'm assuming the paperwork you spent three hours on is for school. My Mandy spends almost as much time on paperwork - lesson plans and grading - at home as she does actually teaching. I don't think people really know how much of her own time a teacher gives to her students. No matter how she tries to stay on top of it, she spends hours and hours and hours, every night and all weekend long, doing all the paper parts of being a teacher.

I can easily understand why you wish you could simplify your life, Linds. I'm sure it all gets a little overwhelming.

I'm glad you're feeling better though.

Whoever said simple is overrated is plain nuts :)

Just a few days ago I asked a friend how to pray for her son, who is battling cancer - she said, "Pray for a miracle" so we do. God is still in the business of them, every day.

Yes, and He cares about every niggling thing that affects us. Keep looking up and expecting those answers...

Linds,just wanted to thank you for the great suggestion for chicken legs - I would not have thought of that and much, much faster than embroidering it. Thanks!

We know God not only hears our prayers but He also answers them. My your answers manifest soon. We all have ones we are waiting to see come to fruition.

I was thinking about - and praying for - miracles today myself Linds. I then asked the Lord why it is I feel so ambivilant when I ask for big things. It isn't that I don't believe He can do miracles. Perhaps it is just that I doubt He will do one for me. And I don't want to think that way. I think it's good to pray for miracles - and then to trust in our miraculous Lord to do what is best.
I pray all will go well for you.

Praying that you will be able to deal with all of this and that God will show you His way through. I cannot fathom going back to teaching after this time away to do things that I love. Alas, the bank probably does not think it's so great.
