While You're Waiting: Find a Hobby

(Image Credit: Jomphong)

*Recently I was thinking about all I would want my daughters to know before they get married.  Instead of wishing the days away until they walk down the aisle, how would I encourage them to live?  Living in the joy of who God created.  The practicalities and the dreaming.  What would I want to encourage... While they're waiting?  These are some of those thoughts.

Sometimes While You're Waiting, it can become so easy to slip into just ... waiting.  You forget to live your life.  You forget that today is a gift and it doesn't care if you have a spouse standing beside you or not.  Life is simply ready to be enjoyed.

So don't just sit around waiting.  Go out and enjoy your life.  Find out what you enjoy.  What makes you tick?  What do you want to do when there's obligations of life pulling at you?

*Take up a sport.

*Pick up an instrument.

*Write a book.

*Get certified in something you love.


*Go hiking.


*Learn a language.

My point is don't just wait for the right one.  Become the right one.  When the Lord brings someone special into your life, that young man will want to know what makes you special.  And you'll be able to show him how you've been living your life, not just wishing the days away.
