a life of gratitude (822-845)

Waiting! It is a hard thing to do. It seems like we have been waiting a long time for an answer. I know that He is listening. And I know that He has a plan. Waiting for His timing and for that plan to be revealed is hard.

However, knowing that the end of this journey could be near makes the waiting seem easy. Now the questions – what is the next part of our journey?  I have learned that being obedient and moving forward is my part – opening and closing doors is His. We continue to wait and see which doors will open and which ones will be closed.

And while I wait – I continue to count….

822. serving our international friends
823. cookouts
824. men and women who have served or are serving in the military
825. another batch of homemade ice cream 🙂
826. our summer bucket list
827. flexibility that allows us to change plans at the last-minute

832. that same friend getting to get out into the city and have a good time

I will serve You while I’m waiting,
I will worship while I’m waiting.
