God Watching Day 8

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now." Matthew 6:34a
The Message

There is a Taize song I have always liked, Wait on the Lord.

Wait on the Lord, whose day is near
Wait on the Lord,
Be strong,
take heart.

I am in a time of waiting. It is hard to wait. My time at least is short....less than a week before the falling shoes will resolve themselves in some sort of pile or another. I think of those who wait for longer times. Like L who waits for his release date next month. Or some of my clients who are waiting for family and friends who are still deployed to come home. Dag Hammerskjold says "It matters that we wait, and that we wait in human relationship." He nailed that one. At least the relationship part. I continue to be so gifted on that front. And so I can be stong and take heart.

You're right; waiting is hard. I hope that this time proves fruitful for you.

I'm so thankful for you that you have the strong relationship, and know that no matter what happens with falling shoes, God will bring good out of it for you. Blessings on your waiting.

Blessings to you in the time of waiting. (Sounds very Advent-y to me).
