Patience, Say What?

Let’s be real for a minute.

If there is one thing that drives me crazy, it’s WAITING.

As I write this, I am in Rochester, MN, a place that is reminiscent of MUCHO waiting for me.

Has it really been seven months since Ethan and I were here with Aubree, born ten weeks early, WAITING?


Seven long weeks of waiting. Waiting to know if she would be okay. Waiting to hear back from this and that test. Waiting for insurance paperwork to be sent back. Waiting to know when in the world we would go home.

Those seven weeks seemed to last seven years.

For me, it is hard to see God’s hand in our life when it doesn’t seem to be moving forward. But, hindsight is 20/20, and those seven weeks were a blessed time of growing and leaning on the LORD.

Seven months later, our little family finds itself in Rochester once again. And what are we doing?


Sure, we are actively raising funds to start our mission work in Costa Rica with Seeds of Hope, but until we have 70% of our funds, we do not have a flight booked or departure date.

And although the circumstances drive me a little loco, I am confident that God will be faithful, and one day we will look back and see His hand in all of this.

“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” -Psalm 27:14
