Beauty in Waiting....



I was inspired to write the post after reading Shannon Ables blog post Give it Time: Discovering What is Worth the Wait. It was such an inspiring post. Shannon gave a wonderful list of things she was willing to wait for. So I decided to think to myself and come up with a list of things that I know will be worth the wait for me....

  1. This is a beautiful list of things to wait on. A couple of years ago I was upset because things were not going as I had planned. I realized that I need to pray to God and ask him to work with me. I needed patience on waiting, well he did just that. I have the patience to wait on my dreams and desires. Psalms 27:14 Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! I am doing the same woth my home and how I decorate it, I love the look of acquired over time when decorating a home. I save so that I can buy that quality piece of clothing and or jewelry. I know my eniemies may talk and say how did she get this or that, but they have no idea how long I've waited, saved and prayed. May God bless you my friend!

    1. May God bless you too! I was doing the same thing you were doing. Becoming very impatience with things. I prayed and asked God what is wrong with me? He said you need to wait for beauty. Just wait.... You will be so much happier when I bring it in is due season. If you rush and get this, you will have to maintain it. Not me. So do you want the best or not. So now I wait.

      And as far as my enemies, I have been a spectator to all their downfalls. I have gotten to see all of them fail while I continue on the path. So I remind myself of those moments when a new enemy tries to surface.
