The Waiting Game

Have you ever thought about how much of your life you spend waiting?

I’ve been waiting to get a new phone. Finally today I broke down and bought one. I waited FOR.EVER until my contacts got switched and my phone got activated… but Hello Portrait Mode 🥰

We waited on these little rascals to smile, to roll over, to sit up, to crawl… and with each milestone we anticipate the next one. (But seriously, they are at such a fun stage)

We wait for harvest to come.

We wait for things to get back to normal, for the world to be less crazy.

We wait for prayers to be answered, for God to move, for miracles to happen.

We wait for the Lord to return and take His children home ❤️

We wait and wait and wait.

Recently I was thinking about how sick I am of waiting. I’m ready to know what’s next and to be done with the anticipation and the waiting stage.

But then it hit me. Life is waiting. I didn’t google what percentage of life is spent waiting- but I’d say it’s 100%.

I can’t stop the waiting game. And I’ll never get to the end of it. So I need to figure out how to wait well. Psalm 27:14 had a good reminder for me: “Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord”

We are nearing the end of one waiting game 😉

Last night was a baby shower for Deb, hosted by several sweet cousins.

Such a relaxed fun evening.

We can’t wait to meet you, Baby K 😍 Your room is ready, and I think you’ll love it.

But I’ll try to wait patiently these last few weeks, I hope I’m learning.
