"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." Joseph Campbell
Last fall, my friend called and informed me that there was a patch of moonflowers in front of the barber shop a few blocks from me. I grabbed my camera and ran. There was, indeed, a beautiful patch. Problem was that it was not quite sunset yet, and they don't bloom till the sun goes down. I decided to sit in the car and wait...and wait...and wait. Daughter-in-law called on my cell phone and asked what I was doing. I told her I was sitting in front of a closed barber shop waiting for moonflowers to bloom. She thinks I'm crazy. At last the sun went down and they bloomed!! And you know what? I think they were much prettier folded up! The waiting is the hardest part.
"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more then watchmen wait for the morning."
