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.

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 day had been filled with grandiose gestures attempting to prove that he had changed, that he thought I was wonderful, and […]

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 […]

Going Through the Valley in Times of Waiting

The gray skies matched my gray mood. I wrapped my sweater closer around my body attempting to keep the cold damp November wind at bay. The kids clothes were packed ready to go to their Dad’s after Thanksgiving lunch with my family. I felt grateful they would be with me for at least part of […]
