Still Waiting...

We are still waiting {patiently} to hear about the job that will move us home to Spring Lane. I am feeling rather tossed to and fro with all of it. I will go from wanting it so badly that there is no other option but to move back to surrenduring to whatever the outcome may be...that is where I am at right now. Surrenduring. Willing to give it up if need be. Yet, secretly hoping by some miracle that the path will be cleared.

My friend Jan of Hazelnut Cottage fame posted a beautiful quote last night on her blog which really spoke to me this morning when I read it. I hope it blesses you too...{P.S. I bought one of her new mixed media houses. It is adorable! Check out her new work if you haven't already!}

“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.”
