Patience ... ... ... ...

So here I sit at work ... I had 1 client ALL day long.  And its 8:03 ... They are letting me leave at 8:15 ... That is a whole 12 minutes to wait ... And that is the hardest thing ... WAITING ... being patient.  I let time take over, in the way that I can't even stand to wait here for now only 10 minutes!  How sad is that?!  But if I could just learn to love while being patient ... Life would be so much easier ... If only I wouldn't complain ... If if if ... If i only knew what was coming next, life would make sense, but NO ... gotta wait till the timing is right!  Again waiting!  My life revolves around waiting!!  And your sitting here reading this, whoever you might be, WAITING for this to be over!  Patience is a virtue ... which I obviously have yet to obtain!!  

Ok so one good thing that came out of today is this:  I found out that I am the top retail seller at the spa for August, so far!!  I am the newest Aesthetician and haven't been busy, BUT have managed to shoot up in the retail/sales world!!!  It was very exciting to see my name right at the top of the list and highlighted!!!  

Well ... This post has helped me to get through my 12 minutes!!!  

"But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, PATIENCE, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."  Galations 5:22-23a


  1. Its so interesting how the aspect of time so often takes up a big chunk of our conscious mind! Whether we're watching the clock anticipating the end of something, or counting down to the beginning of something else, patience is a great virtue many of us still struggle with! I think that when we acknowledge the fact that patience is something that takes time to develop, we will eventually learn to apply ourselves accordingly to receive the gift of patience.

    Hope you are doing well hun, and CONGRATS on being the top retail seller!

  2. Patience ... it's hard to even know where to begin ... and how it ends too! Our waiting game, so often, is only for the things of this world. Ultimately, our hope, waiting, and patience should be for Jesus' return, our ETERNITY spent with Him! Another line of that song "Soon and Very Soon" should be, "no more waiting there, we are here to see the King!!".
