Times Of Waiting 

Like Jacob of old, I clung with soul-effort,
“I will not let you go, until you bless me.”
Then the One who called forth the stars
called my name. 
You, born again child of God;
I called you from the valley and gave you increasing faith. 
I led you to the mountaintop where I tested you 
more than you could know. 
I opened the eyes of your heart to see what I’ve
seen all along. 
I watched for the bud of patience to bloom in your heart,
and praise to move upon your lips. 
I waited for you to enter soul rest, where struggles
cease and joy returns. 
I sent my word, so you would understand;
Times of waiting
are in the Father’s hands. 

Blessed is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates.
waiting at my doorposts. Proverbs 8:34

  1. Thank you for this, Glenda. I was praying for you and Dave today, realizing that we hadn’t heard from you this past Christmas and wondering if you were ok. Hope you are well.


    • Well Hi Kerm! Great to hear from you. Yes, we are both doing well, gratefully so. We were so happy to get your Christmas newsletter. You have been so faithful all these years to send these out. Dave and I spend our days thanking the Lord for so great a salvation and for the blessings of friends and family. Our first great grandson was born two months ago and there’s another coming in April!! Not bad for a couple that was told many years ago we would never be able to have children of our own. Well as you know God said differently, and praise God we have lived long enough to enjoy seven grandchildren, and soon 2 great grandsons. Please give Ayn our love. If you ever are out this way, we would love to see you. We don’t travel as much as we used to, and when we do, it’s usually to Davids in PA or my home in Alabama, though it’s been 3 years since we traveled there. Much love to you and Ayn and your families. Thanks so much for stopping by to share. God bless you!


      • Hi Glenda. Glad you and Dave are doing well. We are hoping to take the last of my granddchildren on a foreign mission trip this summer. Josie’s trip got cancelled in 2020 when she graduated high school so we need to get it done this summer before she graduates from college next year. We are looking at Poland as a possibility. Blessings on you and Dave.
