It came! Spring arrived!
I LOVE Spring. But then something else showed up. I began feeling a bit jittery. It finally happened. Honestly, I knew it would. Discontentment. This is something I really dislike about myself. I wanted nothing more than to decorate with birds and eggs and nests and tulips, or even paint a room in a bright robin's egg blue.
I knew that not having a home would catch up to me soon enough. It actually took longer than I expected, so that's good, right? But Spring arrived and here we are. Still waiting on God. Sometimes I wonder if He is paying attention. I know He is, of course. I trust Him and I believe what He is planning is better than anything I ever could. This is where I quote 2 Peter 3:9 and remind you and me that God is not slow in keeping his promises. Some might call that a Sunday School answer. I have become sick of that phrase. I LOVED Sunday School. I learned a lot there and yes, I learned the answers to my questions in bible verse form. What's wrong with that? Jesus answered questions with bible verses too. I'm ok with Sunday School answers. (Sorry. **steps off soap box**)
I pray and ask God to help me enjoy this time. Time with my parents that my children and I haven't had in years. I am so thankful for that. I am thankful for parents who were not just willing, but EXCITED to have us. But it keeps coming back. This is not my home. Which reminds me of another bible verse. :) It also reminds me of my favorite quote...
I dream of a home with robin's egg blue walls and a vase full of tulips. I dream of a big table full of friends, food, and laughter. And I dream of a home in heaven that I don't have to redecorate because God prepared it for me and He knows just what I like. :)
