Okay, once again we're back at square one. Thankfully, God closed (slammed) the door on what I was sure was going to be The Scrap Inn. Luckily, things did not progress as quickly as I wanted them to, and in the end we were saved from a BIG mistake.
As I've said before God's timing is perfect. Once again I feel like even though things did not go the way I thought they should, that they went just as they should have and we have gained more knowledge. I thank God, that He saved us from what would have been a terrible mistake, and that He closed the door in a way that there is "no one to blame".
I shared with my sister that if this didn't work out I was going to be very disappointed. Her response was - "with who?" I had to think about that one - and realized that it would be wrong for me to be disappointed, because if it didn't work out it was as it should be. I also believe God prepared me beforehand for the closed door. I also thank Him, that it was obvious to both Bob and I that the door was closed!
What an awesome God I serve. Now the search continues - with a renewed desire for God's leading.
