I was having a rough time a while back and my good friend Erin sent me "The Rainy Day Book: Pick-me-ups for when you're a little blue!" I sometimes pull it out when I am feeling a little down and it usually puts a smile on my face. I found a poem in it tonight and thought we could all use a reminder to be patient.
Ruth Cowles

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!
