I love this time of waiting, as strange as that sounds. I know that, soon, we'll have an answer. But for now, it's completely unknown. Will he get in? If so, where? Where will we move? Not knowing the answers really forces us to simply appreciate today. Just today. No expectations. So we wait, wait to prepare.
I am a Christian (although, for the record, I do struggle with that word and all that it entails. I've actually even tried not to believe, but I do.). So, that being said, I love and was raised listening to and singing the song "O Holy Night." There is a line in the song that says "A weary world rejoices"... and another that says "His law is love and His gospel is peace." I feel like those words encompass our lives in this moment. Sara Groves is one of my favorite singer/songwriters, and she re-wrote the music (not the lyrics though) to O Holy Night. This is what has been coursing through my brain as we wait to prepare for our big news. It is comforting. And yes, we're listening to Christmas music already :). Enjoy!
