I told myself that I would be able to handle it better this time. I am pretty good at offering reassurances and encouragement to others. But, taking my own advice? Not so much!!
Was thrilled this morning to find out that our dossier was delivered. That means we should be submitted next week, right? Well, our "Request for Information" letter was part of an earlier package that Fed Ex lost. We sent a new copy with our dossier just in case. So... Fed Ex found the lost package and it also arrived today. Which is good. But, we found out that the request letter has to be submitted and processed before our dossier can be submitted. This processing can take up to a week. It's possible that we won't be submitted next week. And each delay puts us at greater risk of running into the anticipated "shut down." UGH!
It's scary... and yet that poses the question. Are the things I tell others just words or do I really believe it when I say that this isn't a surprise to God and He is in control - not me?
