Waiting for Christmas
Waiting's hard, isn't it? I think the hardest thing for me to wait for is answers. What will happen in the future? Will things work out the way I think they should? What if they don't? When I don't have all the answers right now, I tend to worry and fret about all the what-ifs. With the uncertain economy this year, the stress increases. I'm learning (gradually) that it's just a pointless waste of time and energy to worry about such things.
When the future arrives and the answer comes, it's kinda like Christmas. Sometimes things work out exactly how I wanted them to. Often they work out even better than I could have imagined. And occasionally it's not what was "on my list" at all, but it's what my Heavenly Father wanted me to have-- so I'm learning to be content... and trying not to worry!
