I have been on vacation this whole last week at my relatives' houses in Dallas. And one of them has a ton of acres with a few chickens which my son then chased almost the whole time we were there.
I feel like I need to send my family an apology note just in case their chickens never lay another egg purely from the stress of being under constant attack from a 20-month-old who has not learned even the basics of the idea of being gentle.
Anyway, we are home and we are exhausted. So, all that to say, don't have high expectations of this post! Ha! :)
I did want to give you all just a little bit of hope though. I think ALL of us are in a waiting game of some sort or another - maybe you are in the midst of finishing your novel, maybe you're waiting to hear back from a publisher you talked to at a conference, maybe you're waiting to get your edits back from your publisher, maybe you're waiting for something that isn't related to writing at all (like me!).
Or, maybe you feel like one of those now-eggless chickens being chased by a hyper active toddler and there is no end in sight. Maybe life has become so busy and overwhelming and stressful - maybe you are waiting to even figure out what to do with the rest of your life (where should I go to school? Who should I marry? What job should I take?).
Whatever you are waiting for, I hope this verse is as encouraging for you as it was for me!
"Lord, be gracious to us! We wait for You. Be our strength every morning..." - Isaiah 33:2
What are you waiting for? And how can we be praying for you? :)
