Did you get to read my post about “Praying For A Home?” You can read it -> HERE if you want to catch up :)
So, I did pray the novena and I didn’t set my mind to ‘God will do it for me’ idealistically assuming I would get every thing I wanted. We have seen some changes this past month.
Since February we have gotten to the top of 3 lists for housing. At the moment we know of an opening that we qualify for and it should be available in a few weeks. It will be so nice to set things up so I can have the kids and really get to spend time with them.<img class="size-full wp-image-291" src="http://musingmom6.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/image1.jpg" alt="Personal Value Be Your Biggest Fan” width=”250″ height=”250″ /> You Should Be Your Own Biggest Fan
We have some ‘associates’ that we thought were friends that are very far from it. People use others for their own gain and assume that it is ok to do so. I feel truly sad for these people. They live in a fantasy where it is all about them. I wrote about having Real or Fake friends Back in February on An Amazing Woman. I have found I prefer real ones to fake ones, sometimes it can be difficult to see in the beginning.
My ex is still having residual problems from cancer treatment. I am hoping to get things set for them to move back with me so he can put all his energy to healing himself.
I am still extremely hurt by the way I was treated during the divorce. The laws in Indiana were supposed to keep me from this situation. Forgiveness from my heart is certainly complete. ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” For me, that was easier to accept than forgetting their poor judgement. I also took part in the #ForgivenessChallenge I have not gotten to keep up with the daily prompts, things have been too unsettled. Some if the questions don’t fit my situation or I have moved beyond that point. I do feel that it is a good program for anyone to work through. It can be done at any time and at your own pace.

People hurt for many reasons. Ill treatment is at the top of that list. It comes in many forms. Acceptance of God’s Will is what will stop the unfair and poor treatment of people. People you think are your friends only to hurt you later have been plentiful.
Hypocrites seem to think that as long as they go to church they are saved from everything. ‘Oh, Jesus already paid for my sins. I’ve nothing to worry about.’ I don’t think it works that way. Although, I may be wrong. My understanding of what I’ve read in the bible is that those that sinned and changed their ways were given absolution to ‘go and sin no more’. Sounds to me like there is something positive to be expected.
May has been a crazy month. Housing is closer to becoming a reality. My husband and I are finding out who our friends are and who are not. Friends are an extension of positiveness around us. Those that aren’t and just use you when they need something are a negative influence. These people usually lie to pretend they are the ones being used.
I will continue to pray that our housing situation will be realized, soon. And that God puts some really good people in our path. It is time for the good to come back to us in return for our good intentions to others.
