Perhaps waiting is part of our redemption. Perhaps it is a gift that makes what we hope for possible. Perhaps dreams, like embryos, require months of preparation inside a patient soul before what was conceived can be fully formed. Perhaps waiting is not simply that period before we get what we want; perhaps the waiting itself is the best part of the journey. Like Christmas, the anticipation is more meaningful than the day itself so we must learn to be patient, to stay in the moment and to find the joy that comes only from waiting. But how? In this series we’ll look at four characters (or couplets of characters) who modeled what it means to wait well. All of them carried around a restless hope that would not let them settle, with a durable trust that would not let them quit.
