ICR: waiting

You will keep the mind that is dependent on You in perfect peace, for it is trusting in You.  Isaiah 26:3 Is anything more difficult than waiting on something?
Your birthday...Christmas...graduation...vacation...a job...marriage...a answer to prayer...test results.
The days seem to drag on, especially as the big event draws closer.
When I wrote I can relate., I had some things in mind that maybe one day I would be writing about from past experiences.  I had no idea the first follow up post would be about something that has just occurred in the past week.
NOTE:  personal story of the female kind ahead...FYI.
Therefore let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us at the proper time. Hebrews 4:16 As of right now, I am awaiting results on a biopsy taken this morning of calcification desposits located in my left breast.

Happy Birthday, Alex!
Today we celebrated Alex's 11th Birthday.  It began early...and ran late.  He and Tim are just getting off to bed now.   It has been a week long celebration beginning in IN over last weekend with my family.  Usually we take off school on the boys' birthdays, but because he had his golfing and birthday celebration with Nana and Pawpaw on Monday, we had school today...after the annual stop at Duncan Donuts for two round goodies with holes in the middle (three if you count the FREE one he was given, too, but hasn't devoured yet).  I cannot complain for I was introduced to pumpkin spice {decaf} coffee today.  I am in love.  Yes, in LOVE!

Ephesians 3:17b-19 There are times when I can so relate to certain folks in the Bible.   As I read the adventures of success and failure, good times and bad, I sometimes wonder if they (whomever it is at the time) had any clue that many moons later their story would have an effect on a life in the 21st century.  And, is it not just like God to use His living and active Word (Hebrews 4:12) to bring relevance and hope to life today through the experiences of His people years ago?   Personally, I think it's awesome. Today, the pretty life is what is mostly displayed for the world to see.  All things great, comical, or otherwise happy are okay to share across social media.  Or major complaints. Those are showin…
