still no word

This has to be the longest process I've ever gone through. I can tell you we got some wonderful news recently and it's the only thing allowing us to even move forward...we're soooo close (I know I've said that before but we've never been this close) but still, no final word on this clinic that we've dreamed about and planned for since mid-November. I'm finding the beauty and humor in it everyday though. It is truly a blessing to see my husband grow in humility, in trust and confidence in the ultimate Healer, not himself, no, Jesus the Perfect One. That is what makes this bitter process sweet. Oh, and God has been teaching me some much needed lessons, too. I'm reminded of two verses lately. I hang on to these admonitions when my spirit feels faint.

"We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing the suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us" Romans 5:3-5

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" 1 Thess 5:16
