I think I have written about this before, but it is so appropriate in so many areas of life.
Currently, I am dealing with my unmet expectations about the duplex I hope to move into.
It was originally supposed to be ready the beginning of October, but with the amount of work needed, it was pushed back to the 14th of October.
At that point, my future housemate moved in... but she has been living in a kind of glorified camping situation since then. I was hoping/expecting to move in this weekend, but the duplex was not ready enough for that to be feasible.
So here I am again,
in another temporary situation
I re-shuffled my suitcases and bags again
I'll carry my things to and from the shower when I need to use the shower
I'm excited for the day when I can pull jeans from a dresser
and use my shampoo that is already in the shower.
when I open the freezer to pull out the marinara sauce I made ahead
when I have food in the fridge to pack for lunch on Monday
I am weary of feeling homeless and at the same time, grateful to dear people who let me sleep in their spare bed or on their spare couch.
More lessons and learning about resting my expectations on the Lord and letting the reality be enough.
