A week ago today, my church held a Women’s Ministry event about waiting on God; waiting for Him to answer prayers, fulfill promises, bring us to a better place, etc. While the speaker was talking, I was certain that there was nothing in my life that I was waiting on God for.

This week has been full of its ups and downs, as most are. Our dear friends welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world, we came home from a weekend away, and we also all got sick, meaning that we’ve had a fussy Baby J and a tired mama and dada. That’s all part of … Continue reading
