I am so glad You are patient, and right now I wish I were too. This
problem has deeply affected my family--the very people I ought to have
the most patience with. When some-thing doesn't go smoothly with them. I
become entirely too short-tempered and short sighted. I've also become
irritable with coworkers who can't seem to accomplish their tasks
quickly enough or flawlessly enough to please me. I care about these
people, but You wouldn't know it by the way I've been behaving toward
them. If that's not bad enough. I actually became upset with a fax
machine recently because I thought it should work faster.
Dearest Impatient Child,
You have been thinking about your trials and tensions all wrong. You
should regard these many trials with unadulterated joy, because you know
that it is these very troubles that will result in you gaining the
patience you desire. Then this patience will produce the character you
hope to have, and in turn, that character produces more hope. A hope
that never disappoints, because I have poured out My love so much that it
fills your very heart. Consider the example of the farmer who waits
patiently on the land until it gives him a crop; note how patient he is
in waiting for the rain to come.
