Waiting

Now that the holidays are over the pace of life has slowed down tremendously. It almost feels like life has stopped or at least slowed to a crawl. I guess I should enjoy this while it lasts and maybe this is just God's cue for me to savor the moment. I've been in a pretty contemplative mood lately, especially with Jon completing school and us waiting for God's leading concerning the next phase of life. I think it is safe to say that I'm content. God has been doing a lot in my heart over the past couple of weeks and my life (especially lately) has just been peaceful. This resting in the Lord is beautiful. I should do it more often!!

I was looking for some sort of picture to post with this blog, something that kind of sums up life right now and I came across this:

Anyone who really knows me would know that I love the feel of something vintage. Anything that has a sense of history about it I find romantic and intriguing. This old door makes me want to peak inside to see what I'm missing. If the outside is this beautiful what must the inside hold? That is kind of what life feels like right now. I can't quite see what is on the other side of the door just yet but I want to take in every aspect of the beauty of the door itself, the color, the lines, and every minute detail. It just fills my heart with anticipation. So for now I'm recording small signs of God's grace, writing down answers to prayers, and joyfully thanking God for the journey no matter how slow it seems. We've got a lot of great things coming this year but for now...I wait expectantly.

""Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts."
- Isaiah 26:8

I love the open door, Kristen -- literally and figuratively. A great metaphor for your coming year!

You two are, as always, in my prayers. Love you!
