HIS Timing is Always Perfect

I just realized I have not posted anything in 10 days. I have had a very busy week. It is strange how this week was so obviously God's Plan in our lives.

About 3 weeks ago, when I was trying to finish up all of my classes, I discovered that I had received incorrect information from the School about deadlines on when to turn everything in. Because of this, my degree will not be "conferred" until December 15th. Even though, I am finished taking classes and there is nothing left to apply. When I heard this news, I was FURIOUS! This means I cannot be hirable to a school district until December, so once again I am waiting. I could do nothing buy cry. My aunt told me something that made things a little out of sorts for me at the time; however, now it makes perfect sense. I was complaining about how it was pointless for me to have taken all three classes at one time. I was angry that I had pushed myself until I was sick, ignored my family and my house, so I could finish by August. She then said to me "There must be some reason, maybe you will have things happening in your life that will not allow you to be in school, just think, now you are finished and you wont have to worry about it". After that statement, the my mind went to turning....."okay, what is going to happen?" I was just waiting for the big "bomb" to go off!
And, then Sunday September 2, 2007--that bomb exploded!!! I lost a very important person in my life. My grandfather went home to Heaven. I got the call at 7 am and my dad did not even have to speak! I knew it. He has been sick for a very long time with diabetes, heart and lung problems, but this was just too sudden. He woke up around 5:00 not feeling well, went to the bathroom, and collapsed on the floor in his room. We buried him on Tuesday afternoon. He was my "rock" and I will miss that man until my last day on earth! I know he is better and his sickness has disappeared, but that does not make it easier for me. Jesus is lucky to have him, even though, he was a stubborn 'old coot'!
Sunday night when we came home from the visitation, my husband realized he was missing his cell phone and wallet. After searching for abour 30 minutes, he noticed his "charger" was missing out of his car, it would have been out of character for him to have taken it out. He also noticed his car was unlocked........Needless to say, our bank accounts were wiped clean. Apparently, there had been 6 cars hit in our area Saturday evening and ours just happened to be one of them. We should receive the money back; but, it will take about 2 weeks to finalize. Some other events have happened over the last few days and a detective friend of my husbands, called to tell us they know who these people are and have been tracking them for months. They are linked to over 60 burglaries in this area.
On top of all of that, school has started for Miss Priss, gymnastics and soccer have now started and my first workshop for my teaching certification was this week.
My aunt was right, God planned this week, and he knew I had no extra time to spare, or extra stress levels to give for worrying with some class or homework!
Thank you God for these beautiful life Blessings you have brought into my life. Please surround my family with your peace and comfort. In Jesus Name..AMEN

Krista, I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

Wow . . . what a time you have been having. It is good you don't have all the courses to attend. I'm also glad that they are on the tail of the people who took items that belonged to you.

I am blessed by coming to your blog. It is SO COOL to have a front row seat to watching Jesus change someone so beautifully day by day. I can't wait to meet you IRL. Of course, I can't wait to come visit there either, and that keeps getting pushed back for some reason.....Hmmmm.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandfather, and I'm also sorry that you have to wait until December.
