Right now, I have A LOT of fun/wonderful/exciting things "right around the corner," and there are times I feel so giddy in waiting that I could burst.
- One week from today, my husband and I are going to have a mini-vacation to Saugatuck overnight (his parents are staying with the kids). We haven't done something like this in a VERY long time.
- I am working through reading through the Bible straight through in a year (a few chapters each day) - something I've done every year but one since I got saved - and I am only a couple days from one of my absolute favorite chapters in the entire Bible - Isaiah 53.
- In a week and a half, both of my kids are going to be at Zoo camp four mornings for 2 1/2 hours each morning- so I am going to be kidless for a total of ten hours!
- I am making some good progress on my book, and am getting excited about reaching my August 1 goal and working on my September goal of entering Page Turner.
So, whatever you are waiting for, wait with anticipation - anticipation for the exciting event, or anticipation of what God will do through your difficulty. Trust me - it will be worth the wait.
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
