On the third day of Christmas

This is a different season for us.
As I have shared here before, we felt the Lord calling us back to Tuscaloosa for Baker to attend Rise, a preschool serving children with and without disabilities. You can read about this incredible journey here and here.
Everything fell into place so perfectly.
There was no one, no thing we could attribute it to other than the hands of our Father.
We left jobs, sold our home, secured Baker a spot at this coveted school, said our "I'll see you laters," and made the short journey back east to Tuscaloosa.
When we arrived, we moved in with my parents.
There really wasn't time to find a house, so they opened their home to us.
We are still searching diligently for our home.
There have been some heartaches along the way, some closed doors,
and some very clear commands to wait.
So we have.
And in the waiting, we are rejoicing.
If you are also in the season of wait, whether you, like us, are waiting on a home, or a child, or a job, or a healing, or a spouse, or an answer to another prayer, I encourage you to be strong and courageous.
Pray expectantly for an answer.
Rejoice in the season.

"Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thy heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."
 Psalms 27:14
Maybe this season of waiting isn't so bad after all.
Sometimes in the waiting, we experience other blessings that only come during that season.


  1. Thanks for the reminder! I needed this today! :)
