Week 3

As of today, Texas Wesleyan has had my law school application for three full weeks. No decision yet.

On the one hand, I really appreciate the ability to check the status of the application online. Daily. I've cut back from several times a day. On the other hand, I amused at their sense of humor. Take for instance the following sentence which I noticed today for the first time:
The process typically takes 4 to 6 weeks, but we invite your patience. (emphasis mine)
Invite my patience to go where and do what exactly? Is my patience being invited to apply for law school as well? I've heard of trying ones patience, but I never thought patience would be the attorney.

I was going to try uploading a clip from The Mummy where Rachel Weisz says "Patience is a virtue." and Brendan Fraser retorts "Not right now it isn't.", but I couldn't find one on YouTube in under five minutes. Go rent a copy, fast forward to that scene and consider it uploaded here. Thanks for the help. TTFN.


  1. It will work out. It's like the house sale, it seemed to take FOREVER, but the day I signed the deed over was just magnificant.

  2. Brigid, intuitively, I know you are right and there will be much celebrating and drinking of libations when the time comes. However, in the meantime, it's EXTREMELY distracting.

  3. 2 Peter 3:8

    But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day .

    It is easy for me to accept that things work out according to God's Will. It is just very difficult for me to avoid trying to peek at his Day planner to see when things will work out.

    Keep the faith my friend.

  4. Bob, I couldn't agree more. That reminds me of a joke I heard in church once upon a time:

    A man is walking with God and asks, "Lord, you are the creator of everything, and all the wealth of the world is as a penny is to you. Is that not true?"

    God responded, "That is true."

    The man, hopefully, asks, "Lord, would you give me one of your pennies?"

    God considered the man's request and answered, "My son, do you know that a 1000 years is as a day for Me?"

    The man replied, "Yes, Lord."

    God responded, "Good. I'll give you your penny tomorrow."

  5. Hang in there! Yes I feel your frustration!

  6. Keads, to make matters worse, The Queen asked me at about 1:00 this morning how we were going to pay for law school if the house does not sell. If that doesn't keep you awake nights, I don't know what will.

  7. seems as if everyone is talking about patients here, and the Queen wants to shift the thread to faith?????

    sorry couldn't resist.....LOL

    hang in there good things come to those who wait...
