I won't fill this post with whining. Just saying that on most days, I'm OK with the wait. I can be philosophical, I can remind myself that God's timing is perfect, that the child He has chosen for us is just not ready yet, that maybe our family is not ready yet...
Other days are simply sad or hard. I just want to get on with our lives as a complete family.
So I rest in this...
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
