Psalm 25:5

"you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long."

Just one of those reminders that God is my Savior- not just for the purpose of spending eternity in heaven with Him, but He is my Savior today, all day long. He saves me from envy, anger, pride, hurtful thoughts and actions, and from a spirit of defeatism. He saves me from myself, so to speak, and He does this, so that I can learn to bless Him and bless others, regardless of my circumstances. To bless people who share this ache in the waiting, and to bless those who are living in different circumstances, whatever they may be.

So, to anyone who reads this today, be blessed. Know how deeply you are loved, and be encouraged!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the LORD."

Jeremiah 29:11-14
P.S. Today is my 26th birthday. Happy Birthday to me!

Well, I have to say I'm pretty bummed you didn't get a referral for your birthday. How cool would that have been to be wait listed on my birthday and referred on yours! Oh well. My next guess is 6/6.
