Hurry Up and Wait

I am one who is always saying that life is short.  I want to fill the moments, every second and minute with things and experiences and colors.  I want to Elle-ify the world.  Why?  Because in my head, and in my space.  I am better in it, No? 

Just kidding... somewhat.  With life being so short, I want to move! Move! Move!  In New York, that bustling city it was all about movement.  But... lately my friends have been posting and all is quiet.  God bless New Yorkers trapped in the apartments.  Pray for NYC, please!  We are all at a stand still.  It is quiet and still.  I think of God, "He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.'" Psalm 46:10.  We are waiting.  Psalm 27:14: "Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD."  

This whole waiting thing grates against my go-go-go nature.  It feels like I have been running just to wait; hurry up and wait.  It reminds me of something.  Back in college, the financial aid line was super long.  The first time I stayed in the line it was unbearable.  The second time, I made friends.  It started by talking with the person behind me.  I included the person in front.  We talked about nothingness, by the time we got to the front of the line, we had a party.  I learned the same trick while waiting three days in a Bronx Courthouse for Jury Duty.  Instead of Call of Duty, Call of Jury... Duty.  It sounded good in my head!!!

Okay, so... here I am waiting.  I am writing.  I am singing.  I am finally doing what I love to do as I wait on God.  I pray for those around me.  Prayer is a powerful thing.  I believe it.  Life is still too short so... I will choose to trust God.  I will choose to have faith and I will choose to be happy.  Come with me.  I think that you won't regret it.
