Sometimes we wonder why the Lord keeps us waiting…
Nicholas’s application for a disability pension was turned down. We are without income. We have been depending on family, friends and the church community to keep us going this while. Now we are literally down to the last pennies and praying hard…
If anything, this has deepened our resolve to stay where we are, but we may be reduced to eating burdock roots and wild apples, and maybe hazelnuts if the squirrels don’t get them all.
Yes, we have tried social services – we don’t qualify because we don’t have a street address! I have phone calls in everywhere, trying to get things striaghtened out. Mostly, I pray.
Friends, please pray for us, that we will not be forced into a life that is not worth living. Our biggest fear is that we will be separated if I have to return to the United States to work, since Nicholas does not have a passport and cannot cross the border at this time. (New regulations – as if that is going to stop criminals and terrorists, who have read all the John leCarre novels and have fake IDs.)
Someone said to me that when God closes a door, he opens a window, but I really don’t see what that is supposed to mean – do we climb through the window to escape, or are we waiting for something to blow in? Lately, that’s been hurricanes!
Many thanks to all of thee for thy prayers and advice. I have learned a lot.
