He's coming to visit this weekend.
I'm very happy about this turn of events. I really appreciate him making the effort to come so far to meet me, and to do so while he's still trying to figure out some matters of the heart. It means a lot to me, and I think he's so brave for doing this.
God's timing truly was best. The weekend he was supposed to visit originally was the weekend of that incredible blizzard. Not the best time to be flying in and out of Boston.
Sweet friends, will you please pray for us both? Pray for his safe passage to and from the West Coast. Pray for him to have peace of mind leaving his children at home, and for their well-being while he's away. Pray for our time together to be blessed, and that our friendship would glorify the Lord. Also, please pray that I will feel better by next weekend. I'm all about being real and authentic, but I am not ready to be blowing my nose in front of him! Ha!
Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry with oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one's thoughts. ~ Elizabeth Elliot
