The Waiting Game

So, we’ve begun this new adventure in our life–moving our family to Africa–but we don’t have a set departure date, and that makes us feel like we are living in limbo.

A few years ago, during my graduate school days, I took a course on the process of change.  It discussed how we as a society are so uncomfortable with being in a change…we push to get to the next stage, or feel comfortable again.  As a family, we’re in the middle of “the change”, that really scary, uneasy place, and I am telling myself (and whoever will listen, like Ian) to just sit in the moment and appreciate how it develops our character.

Hmmm, guess that is a bit deep for a first blog post.  I’ll try to keep them lighter in the future!

    Hey dude…
    Just saw that you had a blog…didn’t even know it! This blog reminded me of a message that was given by John Mark Comer, or our pastor’s son over the summer. You can listen to it online or on podcast. The message was called “The Waiting Room.” If you’re interested, go to ajesuschurch.org and go to the teaching session and it should be on there I think. He’s an amazing teacher!
