Learning to Fly in Times of Waiting

  by Cindy Hester Okay, I’m not going to lie. This has already been a rough week and it is only Wednesday. I don’t mean it has been a “bad hair day” and “my clothes just don’t fit right” kind of week. It has been one of those gut wrenching, life altering, shake you to […]

Moving Toward our Destiny in Times of Waiting

The words echoes throughout the rotunda of the court house. The marble floors gave added strength and might to the promises they held. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able […]

Entertaining Angels Unaware in Times of Waiting

Angels unaware. Looking back over my journey I wonder how often I’ve encountered them yet never noticed. Signs and wonders were ever around me, but so many times I was oblivious to them. Take for instance the nurse who “just happened” to be on duty and prayed with me throughout the day my middle son […]

Getting to Know Me in Times of Waiting

It’s odd, but for the longest time I could not recall many events of the year after that first Christmas as a separated family. If asked to describe that time in my life, however, I would definitely have to say it was a time of healing. That sounds so peaceful,   but in reality was […]

The Peace of Christmas in Times of Waiting

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the apartment, not a creature was stirring, and each child was in his or her compartment… The tree was lit, Christmas music played softly as I sat curled snugly on the couch reflecting over the past few months. My, how we had been blessed and how I […]

Contentment and Thanksgiving in These Days of Waiting

Tonight I am deviating a little from my normal writings on this site. I am privileged to be sharing my thoughts from the computer in the room that for so many years was my Dad’s home office. As I look around, the values he held dear are immediately apparent. There are accolades and plaques of appreciation from the […]

Learning About Friendship in Times of Waiting.

We all experience good days as well as bad. This day definitely qualified for the good category. One thing I had come to realize since being on my own was how isolated I had become from healthy friendships – especially friendships with women. Because I had lost sight of my intrinsic value in Christ, I had placed my […]

Learning True Love in Times of Waiting

 by Cindy Hester I felt the autumn breeze upon my face And watched my parent’s sweet embrace Their love had stood the test of time Love at its finest hour, sublime They honored one another’s heart They stood together, not apart Yet free their souls to grow and learn As independent cogs do turn Within a jeweler’s watch of […]

Learning to be Yourself in Times of Waiting

I still don’t understand it Lord. I tried so hard to be who he wanted me to be. I tried to look pretty. I tried to love unconditionally. I don’t get it. It was never enough. It hurt whenever  I was compared to others. I didn’t understand why he felt he had to do things […]

A Rock in Times of Waiting

I stood barefoot on the concrete watching the taillights as they faded away. The picturesque night belied the gravity of what had just occurred. From the moment he arrived he carried a defensive air about him. He requested to speak with me alone, and we made our way out back to the closed-in porch. He took my hands, looked […]
