Waiting for the Rain

And though I'm poor and needy,
I will wait.
Through the fire and the flood,
I will wait.
In the midst of tears and pain,
I will wait.
Until I see Your face,
I will wait.
Until Your hand touches mine,
I will wait.
Until your Spirit falls anew,
here I will wait.

I will wait in the river.
Wait for the rain.

For here I have waited
time and time again
Here for you I've waited
and you have not failed me yet.

Here in this river I have waited
On my knees, crying out
and you were not slow to hear.
You, my Lord, came to my rescue.

So though I'm poor and needy,
And when my heart is aching,
I will wait.

Though I'm parched and tired,
Though what I hear is faint,
I'll hold on for You.
Here in the river I will wait.

Do not be anxious in anything...

But in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 Friends, we are blessed! Let's give God our burdens, thanking him at the same time. Here is my beautiful 4-month-old. Elisha's newest things are discovering hands and feet, reaching for things placed to his fingertips, and becoming ever-more expressive, delighting us with his reactions. He is also rolling over from back to tummy quite frequently- but then he gets frustrated that he can't make it back over again! He is a joy. It's been quite a month since I last updated- our busiest month of the summer! But things are starting to slow down a little and Tim has started classes. So far they are going well! It's hard to believe summer has left so quickly, and now we are left with crisp weather and memories of the long, warmer days. But I am looking forward to pumpkins, apples, autumn leaves and the cheer of the holiday season- this year, for the first time, with a son! Here is a video of Elisha laughing. It's a little dark, and also, there's a mildly embarassing part at the beginning where Tim burps.. haha. It is otherwise adorable!
