Jan.18 : “Patience is also a form of action.” – Auguste Rodin

10570455_775675095830053_3095158432456376539_nWhere’s the Hope? We are basically impatient beings. Worldly ways have fed in to our “right now” attitude in a big way.

No waiting and with just the movement of our fingers on the keyboard we can make applications, notifications, registrations, calculations, communications, to list a few. Our society has become finger puppets with declining social capabilities and increased IMPATIENCE.

Once in the car seat we don’t have to move because of drive through windows-  no need to waste time walking or parking. You may have heard of a drive thru chapel, but did you know you can drive thru to vote? Or do a drive thru art gallery? How about a drive thru  law firm, or politician? There is a drive thru payer booth located near Los Angeles, which might be practical in our “want it now” society, but a drive thru  for a funeral viewing!! I kid you not!

I love this quote from an unknown source, so true! “A moment of patience in a moment of anger, saves a thousand moments of regret.”

“Be humble and gentle in every way. Be patient with each other and lovingly accept each other.”     Ephesians 4:2

Grace be with you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
