while she waits...

The other day my girl got in the car after work and showed me her one year zoo pin. One year of working at the zoo, making her way towards her dream.  She was happy, and proud... and I am thankful (and also proud of her!) I know she is afraid she won't get to where she really wants to be, and all I can tell her is that I believe she can, and will. It takes time.  She works hard and loves her job, and I want the world for her... but oh the marking time is hard. On Fridays she gets dirty being a giraffe keeper aide... one day a week, unpaid, and she loves every minute of it.  We hope that someday this will be part of her paid job, but in the meantime, she does love her days at the giraffe feeding station, and she is gaining great experience. Waiting on God's timing can be overwhelming and frustrating, but it is such lesson for life...

God's plan from the startFor this world and your heart
Has been to show His glory and His grace
Forever revealing the depth and the beauty of His unfailing Love
And the story has only begun
And this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
We've just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfolding

-from Steven Curtis Chapman's The Glorious Unfolding

Waiting is indeed hard. And it's hard to visualize what only He can see. Hoping and praying you see more and more as the days march on. Hugs and love, ladies! :)

I think I really listened to those words for the first time this weekend. Yes, they are perfect for her situation. God's got it. Tell her to keep her eyes on the prize. This is going to be a glorious unfolding of a great adventure!

Waiting is the hardest part....but she is making strides in her life in the meantime. Love that she can get dirty with the giraffes; what a treat!!! Love those pics of Laura.
