How much of our life is spent waiting?

Waiting to graduate.

Waiting for your wedding day.

Waiting for the pregnancy test.

Waiting for a baby to grow in your womb.

Waiting for your kids after their first day of school.

Waiting in the doctor's office for a diagnosis.


Christian and I sit and wait in his hospital room. We are waiting on his chemo to come to the floor from the pharmacy.

I think the hardest thing about the hospital is the waiting. We wait on the nurse, the doctor to come by, medications to be mixed, to be discharged...the list goes on.

I think waiting teaches us many things.

To be patient - and wait for things to happen in the right time.

To love - sometimes we have to let our loved ones experience life on their own
terms in their own time and just love them where they are at.

To trust - and know that all things are in God's hands and there is nothing we can do to change His plan.

I think Alcoholics Anonymous has it right. We have to "Let Go and Let God." I think that says it all.

Everything in His time for His purpose.

"I waited patiently for the LORD, He turned to me and heard my cry." Psalm 40:1

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. hospital gowns
2. pillows
3. Dr. M
4. crackers
5. old, wood floors

Waiting makes up so much of our lives, doesn't it, Cazandra? In fact, I've done so much waiting I could probably get certified in wait-ology or something. LOL

Waiting for chemo sounds rough. I hope it works effectively in Christian's body and totally eradicates every trace of the disease being targeted.
