I think I’ve said before that I hate waiting. If I haven’t said it, then I’ve thought it a lot. I really think it a lot when I’m waiting on my husband. Then I realize that the me two years ago would have lost her temper and would have told her husband what she thought about his being late and making her wait. Now, I blog instead. Or do whatever I can to keep my mind off the fact that I’m waiting. The world hasn’t gone upside down because Micah has to wait. So . . .
I have mixed feelings about 2009. I think man, where on earth did the time go? I thought it was just 1996? How is it 2009 already? Scary. Time goes way too quickly (unless you’re waiting). I am excited for this year in that our first baby will be born. I can’t wait to meet this little person that will forever be apart of our world. But then I also have mixed feelings as it will no longer be just Mark and me. We have to grow up a bit more, take on a bit more responsibility, sleep less, be more disciplined, etc. That’s scary too. This puppy has taught us that we’re definitely not super disciplined. But we will be. We have time to get there.
I’m curious about 2009. I wonder if some of the dreams/desires of my heart will come true this year . . . specifically in the area of my calling and using my gifts for Kingdom purposes. I feel like it’s been a while since I served, ministered, did anything that was really eternity driven. Yes, we are good witnesses wherever we go, we sow seed into the Kingdom through our finances, we try to help whoever we can, but it seems like all that is very small. Maybe I’m wrong. I just feel like there’s a lot more. There’s stuff in me that’s got to get used or I fear that it will dry up. I feel like some major growth needs to happen for me spiritually, so I’m hoping for that. I’m setting that as a purpose for this year.
I also hope that we get to travel and spend some time in the sun this year. Granted, I’ll be large for about 4 or 5 months of the year, so it’s not an idea time to lay out in the sun or travel. Traveling with a baby will be a big adventure for us. I don’t think that we’ll be making a trip over the pond to England this year. Maybe next year?
And my waiting time is about up . . . Happy New Year to you all! I do hope and pray that this new year is one of the best yet for all of you.
Lots of love!
