"Patience is not the ability to wait, it is the ability to have a good attitude while you wait."
The do-it-yourselfer in me wants to "do something"—to make something happen. But renewal of strength is not promised to do-it-yourselfers. It is mentioned when the conversation is about waiting on God. So, I wait.
While I write, the song has come on:
All I know is I'm not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not whete I belong
So as I wait for my pitifully insignificant thing, this post is dedicated in honor of all my brothers and sisters who eagerly waiting to go Home, and in memory of my brothers and sisters who are already Home—with special love for Susan Riley. May God comfort you, as you patiently wait to see Gary again, and to see Jesus for the first time..
Yep, with examples like that...I can wait.
