Waiting . . .

In the midst of all our busy-ness today, we got a chance to get out in the sunshine and go for a family bike ride.  We biked to Grandma's house (with Kaisa in the trailer and Talia on her bike) and then back (this time with BOTH girls in the trailer — Talia was tired out from the uphill, so she didn't want to ride downhill all the way home πŸ™‚ ).  It was a great break in the middle of a hectic day, and I think it was just what we needed.

Our presentation tonight went well.  It was nice to see lots of people out to support us and Chris & Krystal . . . there's so much more we could have said, of course, but we said what we could, and I think we were able to convey our excitement . . .  Several people prayed for us at the end of the service . . . wow.  One of the neat things about becoming "missionaries" is people — all sorts of people — suddenly pray for you.  What a special blessing!  

Now comes the hard part: WAITING.  Waiting to see who God calls to be part of our support team.  Waiting to discover His timing about when we move to Calgary . . . I've never been very good at waiting . . . the phrase of a song is floating through my head right now . . . "they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall rise up on wings like eagles . . . teach me Lord, teach me Lord to wait . . . ".  So, I decided to look up WAIT in my concordance.  Here's a sampling:

 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord ~ Ps 27:14

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. ~ Ps 130: 5

and of course, a far more significant type of waiting:

while we wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ ~ Titus 2:13

In another verse, there's the phrase "waits in eager expectation" . . . maybe that's easier to take than waiting "paitiently" . . . or maybe I'll just have to prepare myself to wait patiently in eager expectation πŸ˜‰

    So glad you had a break in the middle of the day. And we will continue to pray for you as you “wait” for God’s direction for your future! But it is good knowing you are following his will … isn’t it?!?
