In my travels last week I took time to see two beautiful and historic train stations: Los Angeles and Seattle. Here is the waiting room in King Street Station (1906) in Seattle.

And here is one of the waiting rooms in Union Station (1939) in Los Angeles.

Back in the day these were nice places to wait for your train.


We’re often not so good at waiting. The ability to wait must be cultivated. It can actually be quite good for us.

I sent a reminder to some young friends recently. Some of us not-so-young might profit from it too:

“I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalms‬ ‭27:13-14‬ ‭ESV‬‬)
