My friend, Aaron, is visiting for several days. Right now, as I type, he is having lunch with my dad.
These have been days of absolute sweetness. When I take a moment to step back, I realize how much waiting has been worth it. I decided as I entered my teen years that I would not date, turning my love story over to my wise Heavenly Father. It hasn't been easy. Oh, it has been so very hard when there didn't seem to be anyone, nor even a possibility in sight, but I can honestly say that every minute of that heartache was worth it. I would even go so far as to say it has been blotted out and overrun and erased by the absolute joy and bliss of seeing God's plan unfold. Isn't God wonderful? His plans are always so much better than anything we could have planned or hoped for or even dared to dream about! Why can't we be content to wait when He says, "Wait my child, rest in Me, in My arms. Have patience, your turn will come"?
But the waiting for God's will is worth it. Every second of every day.
