"Adopt the pace of Nature," wrote
Emerson, "her secret is patience."
Would you have the best that God
has to offer you? Then perhaps you
may have to be willing to walk the long
road, the open road, with patience.
While salvation may come in a moment,
perfection may take a little longer. Indeed,
a whole lifetime, and way beyond.
Be patient with yourself, with God, with
those whom you hold dear. And, with
the stranger at your gate.
Said Ben Franklin, "He that can have
patience can have what he will."
