I asked the Lord for patience.
I know I need it so.
When I put in a garden,
I can't wait for it to grow.
I cannot wait for mail to come,
Pots to boil, bread to rise,
For friends to call or write or visit,
Sun to burst through stormy skies.
I know to be impatient
is a sin, akin to worry.
So, I asked the Lord for patience.
I just wish He would hurry!
