here we are at the start of week seven in what was estimated to be a 4-6 week wait.
do i know what's going on?
have we heard anything from the korean ministry?
should we have heard some news by now?
is it sending me over the edge?
absolutely, positively, one hundred percent YES.
i heard from our specialist at our US agency today and they informed me that as of monday in korea, our paperwork was *still* in the ministry. our korean agency will be speaking with the program director at our US agency again tomorrow evening. hopefully, by wednesday, we'll have some concrete answers.
until then, i'm just barely holding it together. i've been snippy and emotional and impatient and scatter-brained. i know i've said again and again that this wait has been hard, but this part? this last leg?
it's the pits.
i'll be back when i have news to share. hopefully my next post will be on the extreme other end of the emotional spectrum.
holding on to some truth...
do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
28 do you not know?
have you not heard?
the Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
they will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
