The Waiting Game

It seems like I'm always waiting for something.... From small things like a prescription to be filled, or a red light to bigger things like when our new small family business can be focused on and grown. We've spent a lot of time lately waiting on results from medical tests. We're doing it again now and it's trying, I just want to know. NOW. But what are we missing out on while we wish the time to pass?

Maybe, just maybe, we're missing out on looking around at where we are right then and there. Do we really want our kids to grow faster, our time with aging family or friends to be lost? Of course not. Yet we still want moments to fly, want to move on to the next phase.

Maybe, just maybe, we're exactly where we're meant to be, where God put us in this very moment. Maybe I can learn in this moment to trust just a bit more. Or maybe I can just spend a moment gazing at this gorgeous day.

Maybe these moments of waiting can be celebrated too.
