I had to post the While I am Waiting song the other day because it had a pretty profound effect on me.

D and I had a pretty long discussion the other day about our next adoption. He said no. Not now. No questions, but that he just did not feel God speaking to him as I do. I wasn't happy. It got a little heated... not ugly, but I am obviously emotional about it. So I was disappointed.

That very same night we were at an Emmaus function and this song came on. As we sang it.... I felt like God was just saying. "Wait" He has some other things that I need to be doing right now and adoption is not perhaps in the immediate picture.

Three other songs that night spoke to waiting. Then the speaker spoke about God having a plan. It was as if when the speaker spoke he was speaking Gods words to me.

I have a peace now.

I know God's got a plan. I don't know what it is, but I do know that His are always so much better than mine. So if I just leave it alone and let Him do it, then it will be so much better than I can even imagine.

SO I wait. And live in this moment...and Trust Him.

Can't wait to see what He's going to come up with.

Waiting has been a common theme in my life recently too. Just like you, I can't wait to see what God's going to come up with =)

I am so proud of you for "waiting" while your husband is waiting. At least you are doing it the right way and your hubby is not being bumrushed. Than when its finally his time to say yes, it will be so sweet.

And as the song says, "I will worship while I'm waiting, I will serve You while I'm waiting..."
I believe we grow tremendously in our faith and our walk with the Lord during those times of "waiting", especially if we continue to worship and serve Him through it all.
Love ya!

I am in your place now and we have only been home for 5 months with our son. Our girls also are begging their dad to begin the process again. But as the head of our household, I know God will speak through him if and when we should proceed. I keep thinking that God may have even bigger plans for our family. Regardless, waiting on the Lord is hard.
