This past New Year's, I made a request-prayer really-to God that I learn patience. I never do resolutions, but a begging plea to God? I'm good at those. People I know balk when I tell them I need more patience: "but you are so calm with all those children at work!" "no way- you are so much more patient than me!" "I've never seen you fly off the handle with anyone.". I lose my temper just writing about those comments. Ok, maybe not really, but patience is multifaceted and currently I am quite lopsided.
Check my charts and you will see Scorpio and dragon mentioned. Child of God too, which really means (if we are honest with ourselves) naughty, but loved. I can do for more patience. Patience in my own future, patience in how I see the evolving future of others. The ability to allow time and life experience to move at a pace I might not agree with.
I prefer speed; this year is gonna be a challenge.
That God of mine, He keeps me in check. He signed on to the patience plan with a giggle and a tap of my shoulder. Leading me to a great knowledge of self one day, the next Ace is surprisingly up by dawn and all the day long I am as cloudy as a New England fog. I never liked pin the tail on the donkey what with all that spinning of the shoulders.
All is accomplished in record time! Bear's "important work" done and a meal made to highlight his learning. I edit a few photos, spend time with Champ, grocery shop, pray, listen.
Please stop spinning me into myself, I just want to move forward. Wait, You are going to reveal it at Your pace, not mine? Well this should be interesting.
