The Waiting Game...

I am sure I am not the only one that hates the waiting game... it seems like alot of life is waiting... waiting for a miracle, waiting for healing, waiting for a job, waiting for answers for direction in your life. Whatever it is in your life we all have periods of waiting.

This weekend I forced my husband into watching the movie "Fire Proof" now he wasn't bucking at the idea of watching it as we have heard mixed reviews of the movie and we have been working on the "Love Dare" book since a friend recommended it to us and we are learning lots and having fun with the daily dares. ***On a side note highly recommend this book to married couple no matter how short or long you have been married. *** We both were happily suprised with the movie... for being a Christian movie it was hard to find in stock at Blockbuster - first indication that people were obviously interesting in watching it. Once we finally found one in stock we watched it with open minds. It was way less chessy then we thought it would be and the moral and message of the movie was dead on. I am telling everyone I know to watch this movie... even if your not married its good to watch to just be aware whats out there and what marraiges really go through.

Last night I read about a 11 month old baby who was diagnoised 3 weeks ago with cancer - She lost her fight with the cancer on Sunday morning. My heart was so saddend by this news. My heart breaks for her family but then I am daily reminded of my dear friend who lost her husband in September. There are so many questions that may never be answered on this earth but we have the hope of heaven and the peace that all our questions will be answered probably right at the first sight of our Savior. As I was thinking today of all the people in my little circle who are waiting.... waiting for that healing, waiting for a miracle, waiting for a job, waiting for answers for direction in your life we are all connected through this game called Waiting.... so I leave you with this song that I first heard on the movie "Fireproof" and since have fell in love with it..
