Thought for the week
Waiting Is a Window
Waiting is a window opening on many landscapes, it is the experience of recovering balance when catapulted from our place, it is to watch a gathering darkness until all light is swallowed up completely without the power to interfere or bring a halt, then to continue our journey in the darkness with our footsteps guided by the illumination of remembered radiance, it is to know courage of a peculiar kind—the courage to demand that light continue to be light even in the surrounding darkness.
To walk in the light while darkness invades, envelops, and surrounds is to wait on the Lord.
This is to know the renewal of strength. This is to walk and faint not.

Jane Gould
