The woman's use of the word "collective" - didn't know whether to laugh or cry....straight out of Star Trek, but "do do do do, do do do do" was playing in the background!
Maria: USAA is the ONLY company I still "trust" as far as loans/insurance/etc. go. They still think like real, live people there - I'm sure it's because they are dealing with military. I've NEVER had a bad conversation with one of the reps, in fact I'm constantly thanking them AND God for their polite, human treatment of me. It's rare that we don't get that conversation side-tracked into everyday things - kids, weather, all kinds of things. I asked a guy one day (he was helping me set up something, and it was taking long pauses in between talking) what he did to keep himself from getting bored while he was waiting. He laughed, and told me he was working on some spread sheet while we waited...such a nice bunch of people.
beckabecks: me too on the shower....brrrrrrr
I find myself in a constant state of surrealism anymore. I KNOW this is all going to happen, it's right there in Scripture - but it's so hard to grasp that it really IS happening! All you moms out there - it's kinda like when you're having a baby: you know, then you feel it and know, then you can't WAIT and know....but, when you're finally in labor, it's almost a shock! Like, how did I get here? Maybe it's just me....
BTW - have to tell you all how much I love having you all to talk to/ listen to. No one around me could care less about all the things happening. My pastor thinks we have another 50 years to wait, my husband sorta believes me, but won't take the trouble to read/research anything for himself....I think I'd go crazy if I didn't have the Net to fellowship with others who are watching!
We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield.
Our heart rejoices in God because we trust His holy name.
LORD let your faithful love surround us, because we wait for you
