Right now I'm sitting here enjoying a cup of Ecuadorian horchata.  The name horchata is familiar to me since I've probably drank gallons of it over just the last couple years.  Yet the horchata I'm familiar with is nothing like this.  I'm familiar with the Mexican or Salvadorian horchata which its base is either rice or morro.  This horchata carries the same name I'm so familiar with, yet it's completely different in color, flavor, and temperature.

Sometimes waiting can be the hardest thing someone can do.  We can reflect and imagine that everyone else is going forward and we are just sitting back and waiting.  The fact is, this isn't the case and even if it was the case the truth is that God uses the waiting period to shape us.  As I'm sure all of you know, our first daughter, Aletheia was born just weeks ago.  Throughout the 40+ weeks of the pregnancy, we were waiting.  At first it was exciting and new but towards the end we were ready for the birth.  We felt like we had waited enough and were ready to move on to the next stage of life.  The fact is that if Aletheia would have been born weeks earlier she or Karen's body wouldn't have been ready for the birth.  Try taking a cake out of the oven 20 minutes before it's ready and you don't have much more than a mess.  That's how we are when we try to rush things, do things on our own, and do all we can to avoid waiting.
