Wow. Today was one of the most disappointing days I have had in a long time. This morning I got a very matter -of-fact email that the portable dishwasher we weren’t able to pick up on Saturday went to someone else, despite my telling her I would be in touch on Wednesday to reschedule since my hubby was traveling through Tuesday night. Then, at the OT session I was all but handed a list of activities to do with my son to regulate him and came home to an email that my next client for a website has gone with another designer.
Things usually don’t get me down, but this one took some talking through! I have since realized that not having the new client meant more time to focus on the sensory diet and all that entails. As far as the dishwasher, I think there must be one more suitable for me out there. It was coming to us with a small leak, which meant hubby would have to fix it and maybe it wasn’t just the gasket!
But the thing that got to me was the songs on the radio. As I am fighting back tears and fighting off the pity party that so desperately wanted a place to settle- I heard “Don’t give up” “See it through” and “I’m with you” and later on the hymn lyrics came to mind out of the blue “God will make a way where there seems to be no way”.
As I checked my email I realized that today’s devotional from Proverbs 31 Ministries was titled “Disappointment”.
Praise God for a living God who uses others and the world around us to communicate and show his love through life’s disappointment!
