The Gypsy Mama says:
This is the place where once a week we take the chance to just write, and not worry if it’s just right or not.
For five minutes flat.
Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.
This weeks topic...
This could not have been a better topic if I had chosen in myself! Waiting seems to be a large part of our life right now. April is just around the corner and I am waiting for Jakin's due date to roll around. I'm trying to make plans to celebrate his life and the wait of the day is almost too much some times. I can't believe I am looking at another due date with no baby. Celebrating a short life instead of a happy birth. Grief can be exhausting.
Another area of waiting has been in the adoption. The theme of the past two weeks have been "hurry up and wait" and "just waiting on that email or phone call before I can...". But we got great news! The finances have worked out and I shared some other news on the adoption blog. Funny thing. I have written twice lately about waiting! And still being this early in the process I am sure I will right more about the wait before we get to bring our little one home.
Waiting. I guess the biggest thing is that I emphasis that waiting, all waiting, in pain and joy, is in Hope. We wait in Hope with the Lord that he will supply ALL our needs according to HIS riches and glory. Not ours. So again. I will echo...
We wait in hope!
