It is 5:00 in North Carolina now and no referral has come this week. I am reminded of being pregnant and each night going to bed thinking, “Surely I won’t still be pregnant tomorrow, I’ll probably wake up in labor tonight.” But sure enough, the morning would come and that little baby would still be under my heart and not in my arms. With two of my babies I was a week overdue and it was a difficult time for me, especially with my oldest son who was born in the midst of a heat wave in upstate New York.
Now I wake up each morning thinking, “Surely Sue will call today with news of our children. We’ve been next in line for nearly two weeks, it should be today.” Then as the afternoon approaches, my hope begins to dwindle and by 2:00 I realize that we will have to wait another day.
These emotions are on the surface of my life, but deep in my heart I am “anxious for nothing”. I know that my Lord is perfectly in control and that the details must not be in place yet for our children to be referred to us. We put our trust in Jesus, and we wait in hopeful expectation to hear of the blessings He is going to bestow upon us.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. If I get more news on little Dimples, I will share it!
