Learning to Wait

Photo Credit: Kelvin Balingit on Unsplash By Joan Kelley I have spent a fair share of my life in waiting rooms – waiting for grades, test results, job interviews.  To be honest I’m not very fond of them.

Learning to Wait

Photo Credit: Mira Bozhko on Unsplash by Joan Kelley This week marks the 2nd week of Advent.  We continue to reflectively wait for the birth of Christ as we follow Mary and Joseph to the manger.  We wait with expectant hope for Christ’s return and reign over all the Earth.  And finally we actively wait in the present moment and acknowledge Christ as Emmanuel – Christ with us.  The simple yet profound power [...]

Waiting For The Grass To Grow

by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator My husband and I are both children of farmers. While it has its many advantages, sometimes we take on growing projects that are beyond our abilities in the suburbs of Chicago. We decided last spring that our diseased front yard needed to be reseeded. John patiently dug up the old grass, raked, added new soil, seeded, covered, watered…and waited. Our first problem was a particularly [...]
