Patience (2016-10-16)

My mother used to say many times, "Patience is a virtue."  With all due respect, I have come to see that patience is not a virtue: it is a power.  There's power in expecting the good, even when it is not apparent.  God's time is not always our time.  Patience as power is behind the phrase that Jesus taught us: "Thy will be done," not necessarily ours.
