When the going gets tough, the tough get sarcastic...

Yesterday was a tough day to be a waiting-for-referral Tapper. We received a phone call from our agency asking for more clarification on our request, with the suggestion that modification to our request might yield a referral soon. Despite the allure of a conclusion to our 9+ month waiting period, neither Mike nor I felt comfortable with the suggested changes and expressed our desire to maintain our original request. It is hard to hold out hope for something that you can't see or even guess when it might be visible, but I guess that is what faith is all about. In the meantime, I've been amusing myself with funny motivational posters from Laugh with me please!

Really, we do believe that this choice is the best path for our family. As the hymn says:

While life's dark maze I tread/ And griefs around me spread/ Be Thou my guide/ Bid darkness turn to day/ Wipe sorrow's tears away/ Nor let me ever stray/ From Thee aside. --"My Faith Looks Up to Thee" by Ray Palmer

I'm sorry for the frustrating day. The posters did make me laugh. I'm glad you are doing what you feel is the best decesion for your family.

It's soooo important to follow your heart and the Lord in this journey - leaning on the Lord is the best! These are hard decisions but you will be most rewarded for them in the future!

Praying for you all!!
