Thank you for the great article, Pete. I was growing weary , but God has continued to work on me to fully rely on Him and His timing. I do think we are close, however, and no matter how many "dates" pass by, there is still one day when it will happen - because He PROMISED! And He does not lie.
Also, I remember giving birth to two of the dearest sons on earth (I'm biased, of course) and those spasms of pain got so close and so intense at the end, everything kind of became a blur of agony. Well, I think that is kind of where we are now. Things are not going to slow down or stop. Heaven forbid that would happen to a women in labor! All she wants is for that kid to come out and be born alive. Well, I'm my Father's child and I am so ready to come truly alive! Things are getting really exciting. Prayers for and sharing with the lost, ecstasy at the thought of seeing Him soon! Remember, things aren't always as they seem and God works in mysterious ways. Merry Christmas to all! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!!! and Maranatha!
