WAIT…
it seems to be
a life-long lesson
for this soul.

Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes,
 
wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14

Slowly I am learning
that the very best things
come to those who wait.

Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and 
wait patiently for him to act. Psalm 37:7

There is hope in anticipation
and joy in being still
and waiting on Him.

waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1

The very act of waiting
removes my hands
from the controls
of life.

So the Lord must wait for you to come to him
so he can show you his love and compassion.
For the Lord is a faithful God.
Blessed are those who 
wait for his help. Isaiah 30:18

And, when my hands
are removed from the steering wheel
and folded in my lap
and my heart is surrendered
and my soul stops wrestling,

For since the world began,
no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you,
who works for those who wait for Him! Isaiah 64:4

He brings that which I hoped for,
and dreamed about,
and sends manna from the sky
in breathtaking,
amazing ways.

He wows me every time.

…and today, on February 27,
there is finally a beautiful snow
in my little northern Indiana
corner of the world.

I’ve waited my whole winter for this!
