Wait and See

Cadence, One Hour Old
Good Things Coming
We’re waiting and planning these days. Our next grandbaby, Sawyer, is due in just a few weeks. His arrival is close enough that my heart leaps a little each time the phone rings. I imagine his tiny face and sweet little hands and wonder if he’ll have hair.
And this time next year, Rich’s daughter Rebecca will be a newlywed. She visited last night to share dinner with us and model her wedding gown. I zipped the lovely girl into the lovely dress and again, my heart leapt. I picture her, dressed for her wedding, on her father’s arm as he presents her to her groom. I can’t envision all the details, but I know the day, and the bride, will be beautiful.
New babies and weddings–what could be clearer promises of a tomorrow that’s even better than today?
Anticipating these earthly joys, I realize that I cannot wrap my brain around the greatest promise of all: an eternal home with my Father.
I can’t imagine eternity or a perfect place any better than I can know today who my new grandson will resemble or which detail of Rebecca and Jeff’s wedding will be my favorite.
I’ll wait. And someday, I’ll see.
 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in Me. 2 There is more than enough room in My Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”
John 14:1-4 (NLT)

  1. Lovely! 🙂

    I just read your comment over at TheHighCalling too. Extremely insightful. Just because we're good at something doesn't mean it's a dream we want to follow. Great alternate perspective.

  2. Thanks, LL, and thanks for stopping by! I've been hearing that "alternative" word around here a bit lately. I'm beginning to wonder if it's code for something? 🙂
