Good Things Are Worth Waiting For

I've spoken before on here about my parents and grandparents. They are my heroes. They've always been the best Christian example one could want.
Just this past Friday my Grandma and Grandpa Smith celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. 55 years. I can't imagine. Grandma always tells me to make sure I find the right one before I get married. She constantly reminds me that the "right one" is worth waiting for.
Sometimes in life its hard to wait for things. But when I look at my grandparents and see how happy they are after 55 years or my parents who are more in love today then they were when they got married almost 34 years ago, I know she's right.
I want that type of marriage. I want the kind of marriage where God is the center, and we love each other for what God made each of us to be.
Now this doesn't only pertain to marriage, but to every aspect of life. The best things are worth waiting for.
We are reminded of this truth in Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
I want to wait on God's timing and soar like the eagles. I don't want to run on my own and fall. How about you?

Heather - you are awesome. What a joy I get each day from reading your blog. I thank God for putting you into my family. God is in control of all our lives and we just need to leave it all in his hands. He loves us and cares about each little thing we go through. I am so thankful to him for you and the stand you take. God will take care of your Dad ( my brother) . love you , Your aunt Teri
