Death, Taxes & Waiting

Death and taxes are toted as inescapable but I’d add waiting. We’re constantly waiting for something…

After writing several soul provoking articles about grief, the marginalized and a church split I took five months off from writing publicly waiting for my heart to be strong enough to type. My summer study of Ecclesiastes reminds me how short out days are.* Waiting is not a luxury for any of us and I’m determined to live better in the wait.

-Waiting is not a luxury for any of us and I'm determined to live better in the wait.-

Until the wait is over I’ll be adding to my new series “Writing in the Wait”.

What are you waiting for?

Let’s wait together.

Good Morning Girls is wrapping up a fantastic study of Ecclesiastes but you can do the study anytime!
