The wonderful side of waiting..
Waiting for the timing, waiting for the provision, waiting for direction, Waiting on God, can be hard, but as we renew our strength in the process we can also have a profound experience of thankfulness. G.K. Chesterton says "Thanks is the highest form of thought." That is what I love about Chesterton, he reminds us how extraordinary the ordinary things are. When we think this might be the last time for this or that activity, like hunting or watching the colors turn to fall in Oregon, specifically this London Valley it makes me want to look one more time and not be so impatient to be sent, to know when, and to just enjoy and even be a little nicer and look a little longer.
