day no. 13,092: delay and desire (death and delight)

Proverbs 13:12
Delayed hope makes the heart sick,
but fulfilled desire is a tree of life.
Waiting is hard.
The longer you wait, the harder it often becomes.
It can make you feel sick deep inside.
You know that feeling.
But a fulfilled desire is a tree of life.
It can bubble over to joy and jumping and jubilation  ~ had to do it, it came together organically for the first two and it seemed like a third should follow, so I follows my pastoral instinct and did it.  I’m not sorry! J
You know that feeling.
Have patience with those who are waiting and hurting and hoping.
Mourn with those who mourn.
Have excitement for those who have received what they have hoped and prayed for
Rejoice with those who rejoice.
Some days you will feel sad and will have to buck up in order to rejoice with someone who has been blessed in your presence.
Some days you will feel joyful and will have to tone down and pay attention to the hurt that is happening in front of you.
