I wait for you more eagerly than a soldier on guard duty waits for the dawn. Yes, I wait more eagerly than a soldier on guard duty waits for the dawn. [Psalm 130:6]
Reedy Girl hoped against hope for a snow day today. Her custom is to put out this “report card” on whether or not school is delayed or canceled. Whoever is up first and hears the news circles the appropriate answer.
Sadly for her, today was a “no” – a regular school day began and the buses were running on time.
I don’t know how well she sleeps waiting for this news. I remember being excited about the prospect of snow, and longing for that all-important announcement. (And that’s when I was a teacher!)
So often it seems we “hope against hope” for others (or other things) to change. And we wait… sometimes for a “no, not yet.”
