Waiting

via Olystad

Waiting.

Lately it seems that all I've been doing is waiting.

I hate waiting. I detest it. I loathe waiting.

And yet I find myself waiting.

Waiting for what you may ask. Well, let see....
I'm waiting...
...to see if I got accepted to SNHU, so I can finish my degree.
...for little Einstein to starting listening to me the first time.
...the husband to find a job. It's been a year now.
...for my Etsy shop to take off.
...for a cure to cancer.
...for some people to grow up and others to slow down.
...for the right time to have another baby.
...for my lemons to grow.
...for my aunt to get a kidney.
...for life to slow down.

It seems that lately my days have been based on waiting for this thing or that. And I grow angry and frustrated with all the waiting. Sometimes I just want to throw in the towel and say "forget it!" to everything and everyone. Then I want to throw a pity party for myself and and cry to God and say, "Why me, God....why does it always happen to me?!?!" And it's just then that I hear God's sweet voice, "I'm waiting too." It hits me. He's waiting for me to stop whining about waiting; learn my lesson and just sit at His feet and be content.

  1. Hey Monique, I know what you mean by waiting. As for your Etsy store, have you posted in the Critique section of the forums for some ideas on how to get your shop going?

    I opened my shop in late June...it's a lot of work! Wish it was a little easier.

    I tweeted about a few of your earrings, hopefully it will get you a few more views, and maybe another sale :)
