We are now on day 69 of waiting for our USCIS approval. The only thing I can compare it to is when you are 38 weeks pregnant and just waiting and waiting. It is always on your mind. I am really getting tired of it. I have decided to try really hard to "forget" about it. Not sure it will happen, but I will try. I am going to work really hard at keeping myself busy. Otherwise I am going to go nuts. The biggest problem is that everything leads back to it.
Well, I started writing this post 4 days ago. Since then I picked my sister up at the airport, which didn't help, because as I was waiting for her, I thought about how I was tired of coming to the airport and not being the one flying out or being picked up!!!!
Later that night I went to a scrapbooking crop at a local church. During the evening there was a short devotional where they discussed Hannah and how she was loyal, while she waited on God. Every year she would go to the Temple and pray. She waited until God was ready and He gave her the son she wanted so badly. She kept her son at home, until he was weaned and then she took him to the Temple to give to God. There he remained and she would visit him every year. This story came a such a good time, I needed it. Because of this story, I had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed my beautiful family and grandchildren.
My weekend was wonderful and I am thankful for it!!! Now I will try to peacefully wait for God's perfect timing in my life.
