Life’s been kind of ho-hum for the past two weeks. I feel like I’ve been in limbo, meandering through the day-to-day, just waiting.
Waiting for spring. Waiting to see green instead of brown. Blue skies. Waiting to feel soft earth between my fingers. Waiting for winter to hit the road for good.
Waiting for May. Waiting to explore a new opportunity. Susan (my mother-in-law) and I are traveling to Oregon. She heard about an amazing youth ranch on a Focus on the Family broadcast – it’s a place for troubled kids to go and interact with horses as a means of therapy. They are offering an informational clinic to teach others about their ministry, and we are going! We don’t know what will come of it…but we are excited to see if the Lord opens the doors for a similar opportunity here. Waiting in prayer and faith.
Waiting to get our taxes done. Yeck.
Waiting to sell calves (done!) so that we can start shopping for new living room furniture, which has been a long time coming. As exciting as it is to get new furniture, it’s kind of overwhelming. Waiting for Saturday, when Holly and I will go to the largest furniture store in the world (or at least in Nebraska) and hopefully bring this issue some closure.
Waiting for the next trip to see the fam in Indiana…which has yet to be scheduled. 😦
Waiting for house projects that could begin this summer. Waiting to make plans and see results. Also waiting to win the lottery in order to fund house projects.
I’ve never been good at waiting. When you want everything RIGHT NOW, it’s hard to be patient and wait for what’s to come. That’s a lesson I am learning. Again.
“In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.” Psalm 5:3
