Waiting

When our daughter was born 29 years ago this was the rocking chair where I cuddled her for many long hours during the day and night.

She and her husband are expecting their first child this week. We pulled the rocking chair out of the storage shed, got a new cushion and found a spot for it in a corner of my home office.

Now we wait. We wait with hope.

Are you waiting this week? Waiting for someone or something that will change your life?

Wait with hope.

When our son was born 33 years ago he didn’t come on his due date. I was awake most of the night waiting. In the early hours of the new day I wrote this poem in my journal.

Waiting

I thought that you might come today

The timing just seemed right

But the stars are out

And the moon is high

And sheepishly I wonder why

I try to arrange the plans of God.

For even now

I know

You will not come

Until the One

Who holds eternity

Rustles your soft cocoon

And whispers in words that I cannot hear

“It’s time, precious gift. Now it’s time.”

Our son is now married and he and his wife have an adorable 16 month old grandbabyboy. We’ll see them in a few weeks and I can’t wait to kiss those chubber little cheeks of his!

What are you waiting for this week?

Wait with hope.

Psalm 130:5 is the verse I was meditating on when I wrote One More Wish. I’m so excited because I just received my first hot-off-the-press author copy of One More Wish and now I can’t wait for your copies to start shipping this week from my Online Shop!

Whatever it is you’re waiting for this week – wait with your whole being. Wait with hope. Trust in His word.
