Come see the grand opree!

Well! Are you ready for some prime entertainment? Come see me perform along with Anna in the musical, "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." We are merely dancing and singing in the chorus, however the entire show is sure to be a smash! Do join us won't you?

Just go to this cite and get the scoop! Don't forget to order tickets if you want a relatively good seat. Otherwise you may be able to buy tickets at the door and aquire some acceptable, but not so prime positions. I can't wait to see y'all there!

Who are you waiting for?

Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You. Psalm 33:20-22

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning--I say more than those who watch for the morning.
Psalm 130:5,6
So. Who are you waiting for? Oh my dear sisters, I could probably make an educated guess with regards to your day-dreams on this topic. If they are anything like my own that is. He wears armour that gleams in the sunlight as he rides toward your waiting and outstretched arms on his milk-white steed. Perhaps he will swoop down from the magnificent animal's back and kneel at your feet, begging for the favor simply to kiss your fair fingertips.

I delight in day-dreams, fantasies, pink clouds and the like. What true girl hasn't at one time? However, somehow I think there must be something better for me to accomplish in this world than elaborately spun yarns concerning my beloved Prince Charming. Let's face it, far too often, we daughters of God lose our vision for His glory in masses of billowing pink clouds. Ever-so-beautiful pink clouds, but clouds nonetheless. You know them: big, puffy, foggy, muddlingly confusing, disorienting, pink fluff.

God says, "wait for Me," not "wait for the dude on the white horse, he's totally hot." God says, "delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." Emphasis on "delight the Lord." What must it be like to truly delight in the Lord? It sounds to be a state of being so very far beyond my knowledge or ability to achieve. Yet God commands it. It is a glorious imperitive, one that I desire to fulfill, however unattainable it may seem.

God says through David, "My soul waits for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning." Have I ever desired God so intensly that I would wait for Him more than for the relieving pink of a morning sky after a sleepless night? Have you? Prince Charming may not be a reality for you right now. He isn't a reality for me. God is. He always has been, He always will be. God is for always.
