Still Settled...

I got the letter today that Legal Aid can't take my case. It's not because it doesn't have merit, they just can't handle the load right now. I KNOW the case has merit. That's just kind of the risk you take when you apply...you never know who all else is applying. I'm disappointed, but it's okay.

Like I said, I'm learning to become settled when things don't go my way. I guess right now my answer is, "no" or "not right now"...somewhere and somehow it will all work out as it should.

The case with the Attorney General is completely separate, and that will continue on. I'm literally on pins and needles waiting to hear from them. I'm not sure how much faith I have in the system after everything I've heard and read, but I'm just keeping up the faith that again it will all work out as it should. God is in control.

I'll be really honest, I want my pound of flesh really bad. It's a daily, sometimes hourly effort to have a positive attitude in regards to THAT. I struggle THERE. I know most people would say they understood that, but it still doesn't make it right. It's an area of my life that I try to be really settled with, and I have to consistently remind myself I'm not the judge, and again let God be God.

The Attorney General's office doesn't get in a big hurry!! I'm still waiting on child support for Abbi. His other kids are getting it but Abbi isn't. I just don't get it! It's a stressful thing to deal with!

Hey! Keep your chin up! I know it's hard! Since meeting you, I have been made aware of several folks with comparable situations. I guess i was oblivious to how often this happens. Looks like you have an awesome support group! Keep looking upward!

I'm so sorry. It is good to be content, but don't feel bad being a little disappointed. And never forget, that God judges all actions good and bad, and right now I wouldn't want to be in you know who's place. I think God will demand a little more than a pound of flesh. I know that is little comfort when you are struggling, but be content that God is a just God and will give to each what they deserve.
