live in the waiting"Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer." Romans 12:12
COVID-19 has us all waiting
When I decided to begin Living While We Wait, I was a military spouse who was always waiting for our next direction. Not everyone could relate. Most people had their days/weeks/years and lives planned out and they could pretty well determine what was going to happen.
Not anymore. Many of you who used to go to work everyday have either been sent home to work remotely or have been laid off. Everyone’s children have been sent home and many are now schooling from home as well.

Sometimes, just us and sometimes with grandparents or other friends and family. It’s a treat we all look forward to! Pizza and a movie for Friday Night Fun Night.read more
“Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is...read more
Who am I?
My husband says that I am “Jesus Happy.” My faith and status as a God Girl helps me to live now and be patient in the waiting.
