This may come as a shock but, I'm a girl.  And with that comes things like emotions, craving chocolate almost every day, crying whether I'm happy or sad, and wanting to take control of things in my life... and maybe the lives of others too ;-)  The control thing comes from the desire of wanting to help.  I love taking care of others and assisting with anything from lifting a box to contacting everyone I know to ask for money because my brother's apartment had been broken into.  But, it's not my place to have control.  That's Someone else's job.

Back in January I hit a road block.  At the end of last year I thought I had found something that was going to be a super awesome bonus to my already wonderful and amazing life.  No, my life isn't perfect, but I love it.   God has given me far more than I could ever have asked for or imagined.  But on that night in January I got some news that not only was I not expecting but it was news I did not want to hear.  At that very moment I felt like I needed to just wait.  "Wait it out.  Hang in there."  But I didn't know whether that was me or if God was telling me to wait.

That was 3 months ago.  And I'm still waiting.  And this morning I still wasn't sure whether it was me or God... and this afternoon I realized that it was God asking me to wait.  But He was asking me to wait on HIM.

I don't like waiting :-)  Who does??  I'm waiting on time for my photography business to develop.  I'm waiting to see whether I'll be able to go with the high school students on one of their mission trips this summer.  I'm waiting with friends for babies to be born.  I'm waiting on my new job to feel like it fits and I'm not fumbling to figure things out.  And of course, I'm waiting to meet my husband.  But the times in my past when He's had me wait, it's been worth it.  So if He's going to ask me to wait on Him, there's no way I can deny that.  My relationship with Him is on His terms.  So I'm going to listen, praise Him... and wait.

And while we're waiting, here's a sneak peak of the photo session from yesterday.  Can't wait to show you more!
