Anticipation

I am the least patient person I know. I don’t like waiting. Period.

It’s a nuisance. My mind races. My thoughts scramble.

I want instant gratification.

Mainly I’m speaking about…

Commercials. I can’t stand sitting through them. TiVo has spoiled me.

The microwave. Waiting one minute to cook my food is just too long.

Sitting at a traffic light. I must be doing something . So I pick up my “smart” phone to pass the time. Because waiting that 45 seconds is just too much.

I’m impatient for stupid things. I have that luxury. I’m not sick.

Carrie and Travis are anxiously anticipating the results to the CA19-9. His blood was drawn yesterday around noon. The results should be back any minute. This will be the first true “apples to apples” comparison Carrie and Travis will have to see how the trial is working.

That’s something to anticipate.

While Carrie and I were checking out at the coffee shop yesterday I noticed a coffee mug. It simply said…

Be Still

Ironically…I said “I need that cup!”

I said that. Not Carrie.

I need to “Be Still” while my popcorn pops…

The commercials end….

The light turns green…

Being the gracious person she is, Carrie just smiled and giggled.

Please join with me in prayer for the CA19-9 results as we wait in

true anticipation .

    Praying for you and with you always my friend: Lord, Travis is tired and weary. Infuse him with life, energy, and joy again. Lord, it seems odd to consider trails a joyful thing. But I pray that Travis challenges in life, these times of testing, will lead them to greater perseverance. May that perseverance finish its work so Travis will be mature and complete, on his way to wholeness. Give him wisdom and Your perspective as He seek joy and healing in life’s challenges and the better times that will come his way. And Lord, please give Carrie the strength she needs to keep her eyes on You, and not the circumstances, knowing that You, Lord have things already worked out. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!

    I love you guys!
