Getting some? learning some? needing some?
(a facet of love)
patience is the answer/solution to much…too much patience..not a problem.
i appreciate:) the patience shown toward me, so I will (learn/try to more fully) show patience toward fellow-fragile-life:)
The thirst for immediate results is not limited to the realm of digital communication. People seem to be losing their ability to wait in other areas of life. For instance, do you ever find yourself talking too fast, eating too fast, driving too fast, or spending money too fast? The few moments it takes to wait for an elevator to come, for a traffic light to change, or for a computer to boot up may seem like an eternity.
Experts have observed that many people do not have the patience to read through lengthy text in print. Why? Because they are accustomed to navigating speedily through Web pages, jumping from blurb to blurb and from bullet to bullet, hoping to land on the main point as quickly as possible.
Whatever happened to patience? Experts do not have all the answers when it comes to the causes of impatience. Yet, there seems to be compelling evidence that impatience can be harmful. (Excerpt Awake! December 2012: Whatever Happened to Patience?)
Fast thinkers, fast talkers, fast walkers…quick to get things done, but some things …only need patience. Here I go…(again, but can’t help it, huh?) confessions of a soft heart?…or a hard head?…May be I would of saved myself some grief IF I had more patience? Every aspect of my life and my relationships could use more patience; I’ll admit. In my life view, patience is a skill acquired over time..experience. Can I be more patient with Chato, children and all direct and peripheral people/all fragile life near and far?? Yep, sure..of course I need to work on this quality of agape love. (It’s not just a vital interpersonal skill.)
and be more patient with myself…mmm, yeeeahh..all of us, all fragile life needs patience.
Many who believe in the Bible have found that by applying its principles, they can develop patience. According to the Bible, a spiritual person is more inclined to display patience, along with other important virtues such as love, joy, peace, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22, 23) The Bible promises: “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers.” (Philippians 4:6, 7) Awake!

Patience & Peace (to You:) & me)
Do I have enough time IF I have enough patience? 🙂
