"Be Patient, be patient, don't be in such a hurry"

OK now here is another piece of fruit that is hard for me to swallow sometimes. I want it and I want it now, is more my style. But, I know that this fruit is one, that if we can achieve it, is wonderful. Wouldn't it be nice to have more patience with your loved ones? I know for me it would be. Not only being more patient with others, but showing patience when waiting on the Lord. Again, I want it ( answers to prayers ) and I want them now! But, we know that love is patient. He (God) was patiently waiting for me to come to him, and I am forever grateful. I love the scripture from I Corinthians 13:4, that tell us that "Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant." This was one of the scriptures that was read at my mom's funeral. She was an example of this scripture. I have to tell you a funny, but true story. When I think of this, I remember something my husband has said about me. He would say, when we married, he hoped that I would be like my mom, BUT I am more like my dad! Let's just say, I am not always as patient and kind as I should, and could be. Again, I am working on it! He still loves me though. So as I patiently wait for tommorow, I will try to be more like you, mom. You gals will have an opportuinity to show some patience with me because you will have to wait a day or two for the rest of the fruits! Remember, practice makes perfect. So practice some patience today. Enjoy!

Here is your Patience:

Thanks for the patience and the princess. Glad to hear that Dolly wasn't too hard on you. As a Florida resident I don't really care for hurricane season and never like to see anyone hit hard.
