I wrote a post on waiting recently...I think it is my most popular ever post. Probably because I have had to re-read it several times.
Over summer while we were waiting on our buyers to give us their official purchase order on our farm, they kept waiting. After five months, they backed out and we returned their check. She said in her last email, 'wait, wait, wait.' (she really did say it three times)
We have the house on the market again, and have shown it five times in the last two weeks. We are waiting.
We have had two farmers want to purchase our farmland and the farm would remain on five acres. We have been in contact with both of them over price, and with our realtor to know if it might be a better route for us. And we are waiting.
I submitted a workshop proposal to teach at a conference back in April. First the announcements were going to be made in September, but they have been going through some revamping of their procedures and updating their website, so then it was going to be November 1st. It is 11:40 and I am still waiting.
Pictured here is my daughter and her little family. They are expecting baby #2. Last week there was a shifty day...but it proved to be a false start. We are waiting.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
What are you waiting for?
