Friday Follow - Stop Watching The Pot!


You know the saying 'The watched pot never boils'? What that saying means is that if we watch or wait for something to happen it seems to take much longer.... Well ladies and gentlemen - my life is that watched pot... We are waiting for that phone to ring... that email to come.. Something to happen to let us know if we are staying or packing up our bags....

You know what it is like - When all indication look good but you just don't know for sure until you have it in writing ... or the decision maker says - "Congratulations - you're hired!" After five (5) days of interviewing that ended on Wednesday - my husband was told they would try to give him a final answer by Friday... Well, Folks it's Friday at 1:50 PM our time..... 3:50 PM their time...

I'm trying to make myself to stop thinking about it.... Trying to focus on something else... But obviously by the post... I'm not succeeding...

Well Happy Follow Friday - Here's to NOT watching the POT!

  3. Kelly - you asked about the bleeding hearts. They don't have a scent.

  5. Kelly,

    Hang in there, when it happens then you will have a whole new situation to deal with. Just give it up to God in prayer, specifically and then let Him handle it. Celebrate something good for today!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. Thank you for finding me on FF, I have tickled to have the chance to follow you back!
    The "time frame" thing is a tough one while the clock ticks away... but 2 of my kids had the same experience, and they both got called and hired at that job-- 3 days after the deadline! Not very respectful on the employers part to be so late in calling, but hey! if it's meant to be it will happen.
    My friend just told me yesterday that God answers our prayers in 3 ways- yes, no, and not yet! Makes sense:)
    Will be checking back to see how it went.

  11. Why does it always happen on a Friday so folks can stew over the weekend? Why don't they say Thursday and mean it? :)

  16. If you don't mind me saying at the risk of telling you what to do, carve yourself out some alone time and just quiet yourself. Be still. Listen for the still small voice. I have my "appointment" today.
