Are you waiting....expectantly?

“ . . . You did awesome things that we did not expect . . .” Isaiah 64:3 NIV

We are counting down the days until Christmas on our Advent Calendar. The Advent season is filled with anticipation and expectation, when we prepare to welcome Christ at Christmas. The word "expectation" seems to be ringing in my ears alot these days. Expecting things bring out a lot of emotions. If you are a mom, remember when you found out you were expecting and you rushed right out to buy your copy of "What to Expect..."? I know many of you did because, now that you have moved from diapers to drivers permits, there are an awful lot of those book on the shelves at the Thrift Shop! I think we bought them both out of excitement and nervousness!  How about report card times? Do we want our kids to live up to certain expectations?  How do they feel the day they tote them home in their backpacks? If you believe everything you find in your average magazine there are a lot of us who put too many expectations on ourselves for the holidays and we need to relax and destress.
The word expectation reminds me of a verse I found long ago...

Psalm 5:3

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.

I read this verse AFTER a very trying time of waiting and expecting...literally. I had gone into preterm labor with the twins and was put into bed in the hospital until they were born. I had no idea how long that would last, although I hoped it would be a long enough time for the babies to develop. There was enough fear and panic initially that I wasn't thinking for a second about my own comfort, or discomfort.  I later found out that the doctors assumed I would deliver by the end of the weekend,  I was admitted on a Friday at 28 weeks pregnant. After the weekend came and went I started to settle in. Now, there are different forms of bed rest and mine was of the complete and utter kind. I got up for nothing...NO THING! 

 There seemed to be ways to take care of most necessities but one...washing my hair.  I hate second day hair, so imagine how I felt by fourth or fifth day hair. On the tenth morning I couldn't even bring myself to open my eyes. I said a quick prayer first..."Lord, I am sooooo tired of this. I haven't even seen the sky for almost 2 weeks. If you want me to keep on, then it needs to be your strength." (Seems obvious to me now, but at the time I really thought that the strength came from me.) I really did have windows, three to be exact, but they looked upon walls of brick. ugh.
Before long a few nurses came in asking if I wanted to get my hair washed before being slid onto a stretcher to go down for an ultrasound. I was thrilled, not even knowing that was a possibility. They lowered the head end back and raised the feet and began the process...Ahhhhhh!  Then it was time to head out. They went to raise the head, nothing. They pressed all the buttons and the head went down further and the feet raised even more-WHOA!

Fifth song for Special Needs Christmas...

A really easy way to earn some extra spending money is to change your search engine to Swagbucks. Once you have signed up it is handy to add the Swagbucks tool bar for searches. Many make Swagbucks their homepage. Just continue to search the net as usual and you will begin to receive fun random winnings of swagbucks. Most people convert their swagbucks points to gift cards for among other prizes. I began searching through Swagbucks just this past spring and easily accumulated over $10o in my Amazon account. It has been great having that money sitting in an Amazon account for sudden deals on magazine subscriptions, quick online shopping purchases, a required summer reading book, and other purchases. It can even be used for the shipping costs! I love not needing to run for the credit card to make those purchases while sitting comfortably on the couch.

Once you become a savvy Swagger you will find there are plenty of other ways to add to your swagbucks account. You can check out the serious Swagbuck groupies on Facebook to learn a lot from them...check out the FAQ page they have there. And I have more Swagbuck info in the archives here...
