expecting

it's any day now.

every time aubrey wakes up in the middle of the night (let's just say an average of 5 times), I wonder.

every time my cell phone rings and I see it's Aubrey, I wonder.

We've got the room set up. The basinet is ready. The clothes have been washed. The electronic swing has been tested. The car seats are installed. The bags are packed.

Advent has new meaning.

What if I lived this way with Christ? Expecting and hoping to find him at any moment...

i had the same realization once, but for a different reason. i remember hoping that around every corner i'd see this certain girl while i was walking alone. i realized i should hope to see God even more often.
