Anybody else laughing?

Its never good to say out loud that you will "never" do something. All it does is give God comic guidance.

I know this for a fact. I tend to do it often. I apparently like to provide God's entertainment on a regular basis. Most recently I said "I would never put my teenager in 3 high schools in 3 years as" my parents did.

Apparently my own daughter will be in 3 high schools in as many years. However, one was of her own choosing (she chose to be an exchange student in Germany).

Yes, that means that The Rev is seeking a new call and since the kid is currently attending school in Germany we got to break this news to her via phone.

Opportunities abound for all. Meanwhile I trust that God, while Im sure he is entertained by all of this, has a plan and it will all become increasingly evident in the months to come. I would like to ask that His plan come with a map or a road atlas but Im not sure that God will provide me with one. So meanwhile I will continue to do the best that I can to stay on course and take my daughter through the round-abouts and speed-bumps of life in the most fun way that I possibly can and try to keep the vehicle out of the ditch. (Note to the Kid--think driving in Belize)
