quebec city

November 19, 2011

personal

i am bad at waiting for things: this character weakness of mine is well known.

a beautiful eighteen-days in quebec thus far, but if i could transport home tonight, i think i would. the longer i am away, the farther away the faces i love seem to be. however, i know that in all things, God has perfect timing. impeccable really. He has my days written & the very best plans for me. as silly as it may sound, i believe it applies to “just two more days.” i am constantly reminded to not run ahead of His plans — why wish for home when God has me here? what can i do in this moment, where i am right now with what i have right now? they are good questions. i want to ask them more — about any today i am given.

may these next two days be full of everything i came to quebec for: experiencing God’s creation, digging into my Bible on a newer, deeper level & praying about the things my heart is desiring. tuesday will come at the perfect time.

    Isn’t that the way traveling seems to go? Those last two days your head is back home. Glad you’re finding a way with God to keep your heart right where it’s at. Annnddddddd, now I’ve added Quebec to the list of places I HAVE to see. Looks like it’s LOVELY in fall!

    Across the river there…that is where i lived for a year when I was 20. A tiny appartment on my own. I loved it so much and spent every weekend wandering the streets of quebec city…all the nooks and crannies…no one but myself for company. what a great place to be still in!!!

    You’re so right! God’s timing is always perfect. And Gail, I agree with you: Québec IS a place you HAVE to see! :D It’s so, so, so beautiful.

    thank you so much for this post jamie! i really needed to hear that. i am just 2 days away from going home for thanksgiving, and it’s hard to keep focused on where i am right now. (for me, that would be finishing up the last couple days of school before thanksgiving break) thank you again!!! and beautiful pictures :)

    Yep every moment is just as it is supposed to be. We are very similar: at least in name and patience level! ;)

    Jamie – I haven’t looked at your blog for 2 or 3 weeks; to my delight and comfort this post was exactly what I needed to read tonight. I’m in the midst of a challenging situation, one that partly requires patience and I’m struggling to trust in God’s timing and plans for me. I so appreciated you sharing your thoughts. And then as a huge bonus I feasted on the eye candy you shared through your stunning photos. Thank you!!

    Such a beautiful place! It’s nice to have this one-on-one quality time with God and his word. Many take this for granted, it’s really encouraging that you’ve put the time aside and made God your priority.
