Unanswered prayers

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on yesterday’s post. I was happy to read what I wanted to hear, which was quality over quantity. And now back to our regularly scheduled program…

A few weeks ago, the potential for a great opportunity, one that seemed practically perfect in every way (yep, just like Mary Poppins), presented itself to us. I hoped it would happen, I envisioned it happening, I prayed it would happen. We found out last week that it’s not going to happen.

Having faith that there’s a reason this opportunity passed us by doesn’t mean that there’s not disappointment. But in practicing my one little wordtrying to pick up my spirits and move past my sadness, I was reminded of other prayers in my life that have gone unanswered. If any of them had been granted, I wouldn’t be with my husband right now; for that reason alone, I’m glad they were never answered.

And for all I know, at some point in the future, I may feel grateful that this prayer has gone unanswered, too.

“Remember when you’re talkin’ to the man upstairs
That just because He doesn’t answer doesn’t mean He don’t care
Some of G-d’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers”
-Garth Brooks, “Unanswered Prayers”

Because the eye roll Hubby will give me for including such a cliche on my blog post isn’t enough, I must also include the video. *evil cackle*
