Rollercoaster Ride

Today has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride.

It was a matter of telling successful candidates of their success and unsuccessful candidates that they have not been successful. I rode the highs of those who were successful and plummeted to the depths with those who weren’t.

It’s not easy to feel the sting of so called failure. Fortunately, failure is not a destination. The people were not recommended this time. There will be other opportunities. You never know what is ahead. You have to trust the system and keep moving forward.

#307 of my 1000 thanks is for those who were successful who worked hard to overcome previous failure and to see a change this time. I’m grateful.

May all go well with all of them. It is not easy. I’m struggling to find the dominant feeling – I have a sinking feeling that the sadness of failure is beating the elation of the successful. What has made it easier is that most who I have told have the emotional maturity to accept the outcome.

My answer is that you have to trust God on this one. You can’t see the way ahead. But you what it’s like when you face great disappointment – it takes some getting used to.

It has been a beautiful day, so I did a massive load of washing, trying to get in every last item without overloading, so as to only do one load this week. Tomorrow I may bring in some tank water and wash by hand some of the white shirts. Saving water is paramount.

We look forward to more rain.

The Lord knows our needs and He will provide.

This afternoon Riana arrived and we took off on a 55 minute route. My average heart rate was 132bpm. I burned 436 calories and covered 6524 steps (4.77km), which included the equivalent of 31 flights of stairs. That was a great little workout. Some hill climbing, some jogging and a lot of chatting.  It was good.

Now it’s time to get dinner sorted and then I will do a little more work as I see it piling up again.

These are the days!

Keep the smile going!

God bless you!

In His Grip,

Helga xx 🙂
