Sponsor a Child in Jesus Name with Compassion

See my door?  Behind this door two people happily wait. We can't wait to open next week to see our son walk through. He will be home for Thanksgiving and did I say - we can't wait to see him? I think this time around is the longest time in his life we have gone without seeing him - 3 and 1/2 months. I know that is not long in the eyes of some and believe me I am thankful for my situation and I also pray for those families who are separated during this time of year - especially separated by great distances and long months. My heart weighs heavy for you - I know some waits are heavy - may you bear the Wait of the World in peace, surrounded by God's compassion, secure in the fact that He is in control of all our circumstances.

...and while we wait we: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,

give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus ...

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Thank you... I live 10 hours from my dad, and the holidays can be hard. But you are correct.. God is in control of all our circumstances!

God Bless!
