Waiting. . .

Seems like I say that word a million times a day. Someone will ask how's the adoption going? I'll answer "we're just waiting." :o) We are simply waiting for our little girl...well there isn't anything really simple about it. Waiting is really hard. I do realize that we originally thought we would be waiting years to bring Gloria Grace home, and now we expect that to only be months. That is wonderful, but Gloria Grace isn't home yet--so waiting is hard! My thoughts are nearly consumed of thinking about seeing her sweet face for the first time. Knowing more about her--how old is she, when is her birthday, what's her favorite toy, can she walk yet...Waiting is hard.


I heard this song on the way to work this morning. "While I'm Waiting" by John Waller. As I listened to the words I began to cry (I am such a girl), God was speaking straight to my heart... Wait well my daughter! I will do my best boldly, confidently, obediently, by faith. . . I will do my best to wait serving, worshiping, and glorifying You alone.

Kelly...since seeing the movie Fireproof, that has become a favorite song of mine. The lyrics are so powerful and they speak to me each time I hear them. I haven't listened to it in awhile so thanks for the reminder. I'm off now to find it and listen, learn, and worship the one God who knows what we each are waiting for. I will pray for you as you wait for your beautiful daughter.
