The art of breathing

I feel like I've been in a blogging slump lately. Probably because I have been too busy walking around and holding my breath. Ok, not literally holding my breath, but it's like I have been waiting to see what happens. With everything. What's going to happen with my job? Is the weather going to stay gorgeous or are we back to shoveling snow? Is this going to be the month I find out we're going to have a baby?

I know that I am where I am supposed to be. I am supposed to be in this season of waiting, but instead of holding my breath, I need to be breathing in and out. I need to practice the art of breathing. Because, believe it or not, God does not want me to be holding my breath while waiting. He wants me to take deep breaths of Him and His promise to me. He wants me to remember "For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations."

I am completely relying on that promise. It is what is getting me through this season of my life. That and good friends!!

I have found myself thinking of you this week. I have gone through periods of waiting in my own life, and God has been faithful to see me through. He loves Sarah and will NOT forget her or His promises to her!!!
I hope you enjoy this emerging springtime. Spring has always meant a lot to me because it is life emerging from lifelessness, just as Christ brought us life when there was nothing but sin and death. Can you tell Easter is my favorite season? Buy yourself some daffodils, my dear, and breathe in and out. The waiting will end. Lots of hugs to you!
