No rubber gloves.

Ah, a lovely shade of turquoise. They have been reclining in the dye bath for awhile, I hesitate to say how long.
And today, I decided to fetch them out.

Unfortunately, I could not find any rubber gloves. I tried to use a STICK, but that was pretty useless, and eventually (as I expected) I gave it up and just reached in and got it.

It did eventually come off with a whole lot of soap and a little bleach, although my nails are still a lovely shade of blue.
This is where Frank of "Everybody Loves Raymond" says: CRAP!

Anyway, no matter.

Yes, it is.
Everything is as it should be.

Sometimes it doesn't seem so. Sometimes it seems that life is so complicated, and so hard.

Sometimes it is hard to wait for what we want. It is hard to be patient.
We struggle with situations that don't move along the way we would like.

But if we let life unfold.

And if we have faith that it will happen precisely the way it is supposed to happen.

Often we find that it is more than we could have asked for.
Quite likely, we understand that there was a plan, all along.

Ah, yes. It truly is a wonderful life.

Have a great weekend, all of you.

Nice post. Reminding us to slow down. God has a plan. It may not be at the pace we want it but he has a plan.
