Waiting Sucks!

Google Definition: WAITING:  the act of waiting (remaining inactive in one place while expecting something); “the wait was an ordeal for him”.

  • remaining inactive – well not really. I can’t stop trying to keep busy right now.
  • in one place – well, that part is mostly true.  I can’t seem to want to leave to do anything else!
  • expecting something – Wow! I’m just wishing and praying that ANYTHING would happen right now!!
  • “the wait was an ordeal for him” – Hey! That’s me!!

Obviously there’s no word on Brenda yet – nothing, nada, naught, nil, zero, zilch, zip, goose egg!  No sign of the car.  No sign of her.  No sightings, no tips, no leads.  The only “new” information is that it appears that she called in sick at a time when she must have been at home, and then she left home.

Sitting and waiting, scouring the internet, reading the same news stories over and over, praying, emailing, answering the phone, watching message fly by on Facebook, watching people post their wishes and prayers and scriptures, trying to do work, and crying.  All of this sucks, but especially the waiting.

Someone just sent me a message on Facebook with 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in it.  In The Message, it reads…

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.

That’s what’s getting us through this at this point.

I know it sounds trite to say “Thanks for your prayers,” but that’s exactly what we need right now, and it’s the only thing that is keeping us going.

So, once again…. Thanks for your prayers!!!


PS.  I just read the second part of the definition… “being and remaining ready and available for use”.  Name it Lord!!

TTFN again.

    I’m sure you thought of it, but did you tell the police about the thank you card you got in the mail? Even though you couldn’t find any clues, you never know what they might find.

    The police know about the letters, but it was very un remarkable. David mailed them on Sunday. I mentioned it to Nancy again as I was on the phone with her when I read your comment.

    Thanks. Any ideas can’t hurt!
