Disappointed?… Yes, but… I have had a few of those things… disappointments k16024578… in my life and have learned to go with the flow… believing it wasn’t God’s will at that time… that He would have something even better for me… if I just had patience and belief in Him…

I request His guidance in my life every dayx27278458 … and have seen Him work in such mysterious ways…

  1. Hi Marilyn,

    I’m so happy for you and the YMCA is so “BLESSED” to have you as part of their team. You will be a real asset to their organization. Congratulations and keep me posted how everything goes. By the way, Happy Early Birthday……….. Hugs, Andrea

  2. You have always been blessed and a very sweet and special person for as long as I have known you. God does indeed answer prayers sometimes it takes a lot of patience before you get an answer.

  3. No news yet I guess. Maybe when you go swimming tomorrow they will have good news and a start date. Lov U and don’t forget your lonely friends who get bored so easily HaHa
