Awestruck Wonder

I miss her… August 25, 2008

The Fun memories

The Fun memories

The happy memories

The happy memories

Amy looks good but didn't feel so good a few minutes later...(motion sickness!!!)

The difficult memories: looking good, but not feeling so well!

The precious memories

The awe-inspiring memories

The awe-inspiring memories

Now we see through a glass dimly
Now we see through a glass dimly. . .

...but then face to face.
…but then face to face.

1 Corinthians 13:12 …now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 

Living separately from Amy as we wait expectantly for our baby girl has been harder than we ever thought it would be.  I can’t wait to see her again, face to face!  Separation from the one you love is not fun, not normal, and not recommended.  It lends itself to lonliness, extended periods of reflection and quite often, a lot of restlessness. 

The spiritual lesson I’m beginning to grasp through this is that all Christians can relate to this.  We are all separated from the one we love most dearly and cling to most nearly.  Jesus is in heaven, and we are on earth. 

Lets pray with renewed resolve: Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly.

  1. “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!”

    Steve, we are thinking of you & continuing to pray for both of you. Keep looking to the Lord!

    Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.
    For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Cor. 4:15-18

    Hey Steve – man, I feel for you. Being away from Amy isn’t fun for anyone, but I can’t imagine what you’re going through! Hopefully Baby Williamson will arrive soon so you can be all together again!

    I love your photos – you guys always have such great shots. Though, Amy IS one of the most photogenic people ever. 🙂
