Of course you have my prayers!
In exchange, please let me share something with you:
I was all set to go to Holy Cross in the Fall of 2002. However, the money just didn't come together, and I had to delay my entry to the seminary for at least a year in August. It was a very low point of my life, and I honestly thought of myslef as a failure. It was embarassing to have to explain to people back at church why I wasn't where they knew I should have been, and troubling to my hierarch at the time as well.
In September 2002, however, my Dad found out he had cancer. On Christmas Eve of that year he found out his cancer was terminal, and he reposed in March 2003.
Those last few months he and I had we shared as much as we could. We dealt with some unfinished business between us, and I'd never trade that time for anything. Ever.
As it turned out, I was able to attend Holy Cross in Fall 2003. If I had gone the year earlier, I never would have had that time with Dad, and what's more my first year at seminary would have been disastrous as I never would have been able to keep my mind on my studies...my mind and heart would have been back in Ohio, not school.
The entire point of this lengthy story is to let you know that there is a purpose behind this delay. It may seem arbitrary and unfair right now, but the Lord has a reason for you to be in the place you are now...perhaps you are to teach someone where you will be, or perhaps there's yet a lesson for you to learn before you get there.
God knows these things; you don't. Trust in Him. Everything will be alright in the fullness of time, paidi mou!
