Anywhooo.....I'm sitting here waiting for a guy from our church to show up. I talked to him last night and thought we'd confirmed he'd come around after I got home from work this morning. Apparently, I was mistaken. Sigh. He's a nice guy, does great work, but he isn't the most reliable about time. It might be a cultural thing. I don't have much experience with Mexican culture but I think it's a little more laid back than ours. It's so hard to wait, though. I want my yard looking spiffy now that the weather is nice and my back and hip won't take bending to pull weeds all day....the hubby doesn't have time....and the princess can't be bothered so I'm reduced to hiring someone.
You know, I really think God does these things on purpose to teach me to wait patiently. Impatience is a big problem for me and where most of the conflict around here comes from....someone (quite often ME) wants something done and because they asked now, they expect it to be done now. The person on the other end of the request usually doesn't see the same urgency so puts the requested task off and BOOM! tempers flare. I'm not so good at waiting on God's timing, either. I'm working on it, but it's a struggle. Actually, it's a real catch-22. I want to be patient...and I want to be patient NOW.
