to which I replied "based on what you sent me and what was returned to you, how much do you think it was worth"? This is a mess! I should have known better but, we all sometimes trust in places that we should not. The Lord is our ultimate source and as I ponder what went wrong, I can only give account for my part in this and that is that I did not ask God if I should enter into a business relationship with this woman from the start. I saw an opportunity to make some money and continue to hone my craft, but I don't remember praying about it. A lesson learned is better than one taught.
Thank you Lord for this lesson that will help me as I go forward in other areas of business. I will pray and wait for an answer before moving forward with an expectations that only I share. There is enough fault to go around.
