This is a period of waiting for me.
Waiting for Bailey to get home. Waiting for my 3 yr. old to grow out of certain behaviors. Waiting for things that are planned to happen on Women's Ministry Council at our church. Waiting for co-op to begin again. Waiting for Jesus' birth. Waiting for Ben to begin his seminary classes at Dallas Theological. Waiting for decisions on things that are pending.
Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
It's not easy to wait. It can be difficult and at times, frustrating. It can be a little lonely when there are things you want to share, but can't just yet. It can create anxiety knowing that others have some part of your life in their hands as they make decisions about you.
Joy. Joy. Joy.
But, I must say, that this time has been the sweetest time I have had with Jesus in a long time! He has met my frustration with calm. He has met my loneliness with friendship. He has met my anxiety with peace.
