As humans, it feels like we are always waiting. We wait in traffic. We wait in line. We wait for a spouse, a promotion, a child, or if you're like our teachers, a vacation.
This week our workers have been waiting. They're waiting on FPL to install temporary meters. They're waiting for the Town of Davie and the building permits. For the next year or so, we will be waiting – a lot.
So, what do we do when we wait?
We continue trudging forward.
We can plan and dream and set goals for the future, but in the meantime, we live for the here and now.
For us, this means that we scan the building plans, pick out new furniture, create schedules, and spends hours imagining how we will utilize our new space. Moving into the new building will be an incredible event, but it will be the hours and days spent teaching and learning that will have the greatest impact.
Where are you in your wait?
While a wedding, a promotion, or a baby are important life events, it's the combination of significant events and everyday moments that lead to a fulfilled and meaningful life.
"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." -Psalm 27:14
