Waiting Wednesdays - Tuesday Edition :)

I am bumping Wednesday's post up to today. I still need a bit more time to work on something special for tomorrow!

For those of you who are waiting...

"To wait open-endedly is an enormously radical attitude toward life. So is to trust that something will happen to us that is far beyond our imaginings. So, too, is giving up control over our future and letting God define our life, trusting that God moulds us according to God's love and not according to our fear. The spiritual life is a life in which we wait, actively present to the moment, trusting that new things will happen to us, new things that are far beyond our own imagination, fantasy, or prediction. That, indeed, is a very radical stance toward life in a world preoccupied with control."  - Henri J. M. Nouwen, Nouwen Centre

Thank you both! Naomi, I hope it's something great. Jen, I'm probably going to have to skip She Speaks and make it instead in 2013. :( I'm so bummed.
