Sister ... In Waiting...

They say patience is a virtue ... well, God is REALLY testing me on this virtue!

The meeting this morning did not happen. Not because of lack of planning - car trouble.
C.T. was having car problems - she could not get into her car because her locks were frozen. She called her parents who live nearby - and even the de-icer would not work. They called AAA, however, someone would not be able to get there until 2-3 hours.


The Vocation Director and I talked a bit while I was there. We are going to try to reschedule yet again so the 3 of us can meet. In the mean-time, it is looking like late February, early March when I will be entering. You got it ... in A MONTH!

This is going to be very difficult for me because this will be the first time I will be away from my family for Easter....I will be with my new family.

I know it's all in God's time - and so far, He's been doing the planning. We're just trying to keep up with Him.

Update on P.H.'s brother - he was in ICU - he stablized and the doctors sent him home. Without getting into any details, he needs many, many prayers. He's angry, confused, and needs God's guidance. Child Welfare is going to be called to assist the daughter who witnessed the event. She is currently in good hands and safe. Please continue to pray for the entire family.

I'll remember them at Mass.

O my goodness, girl. In a month.

:-) WHEW. You've snagged a Great Guy.. or rather, He has snagged a great gal. True for CT, too, no doubt. I'll keep you both in prayer.

Poor Servant - Thanks for the prayers.
Regarding 'snagging a great guy or him snagging a great gal' - friends of mine and I were talking about marriage. They, all married, were remarking on how long they have been married, when they all looked at me.

At first, I said I had never been married. Then I realized - I am getting married! One said 'well at least you don't have to train Him.'

I responded - 'it's not me training Him that I'm worried about - it's Him training me!' LOL
