It's again time for Mel's weekly Show and Tell. This week I am sharing a poem that someone once shared with me a while ago. I don't remember who, or what the situation was, but I remember thinking that it was so appropriate for me when I was feeling down and hopeless in my years of trying to have a baby unsuccessfully.
This poem had been circulated on the internet for a long time as author unknown. However, I found out that the poem is now published as a book. It is beautifully illustrated by a lady that found this poem after her third successive miscarriage in 9 months. She requested the widow of the late author, Russell Kelfer for permission to publish the poem. You can now find this book available for sale from Amazon.
"Wait" is so appropriate for someone like me, who has been TTC for the last 6 years. It has reminded me over and over again that God has a plan for me, and I just need to learn to trust and wait on Him. It makes me cry, and yet it gives me peace when I read this.
What are YOU waiting for?
Are you waiting for a baby? Going through your 2 week wait? Are you waiting for your adoption match? Are you waiting for a test result? Are you single and looking for your mate? Is someone you love serving in the military overseas?
If you are waiting, this poem is for you.
