Very often, in our individual journey, the timing of things is hard to figure out.
Perfect timing can set our hearts to soaring. It is accompanied by a feeling that says “someone is looking out for me!”
Timing that isn’t so perfect…can leave us feeling inconvenienced, frustrated and…even mistreated.
Waiting is not an easy thing to do.
When waiting on things…One can begin to spend energy and time seeking a path … out of the waiting.
Sometimes, though, our journey is meant to go through the waiting.
Some friends of ours have been playing the waiting game recently.
Waiting on support. Waiting on final plans. Waiting on committees and church decisions.
Waiting to get pregnant.
Amidst all that anticipation and biding time…
These dear folks have faithfully walked the road through...
Support is gathering.
An overseeing church is secured.
A baby is on the way!!! (Praise Jesus!)
Aimee Jo and Andrew, we are so proud of you and your choices. So thankful, you have committed to walking through the struggles…not choosing to run away or quit.
That perseverance you’ve been practicing will serve you well, friends.
I know the neighborhood your moving too. ☺
We thank God for walking the journey with you. For enabling and encouraging…just when you need it…in just the right way (are those TWO lines on that stick?!?!?!)
He has not forgotten. And He always hears.
He has reminded me again of His unending Faithfulness through your waiting, your hope and the joyous announcements of the last few months.
We love you!
When God finally lands you in this place…we’ll be waiting ☺
(Andrew and Aimee Jo Martin will be overseen by the Vancouver church of Christ in Vancouver, Washington. They plan to move to Ft Portal in November of 2007. Their expected little one is due in August. Your prayers for Aimee Jo and that sweet baby, for their fundraising in these next months, for the relationship with Vancouver church and for God’s continuing work here…are greatly appreciated.)
(PS Happy Birthday Aimee Jo!)
