The virtue of patience

Our willingness to wait reveals the value we place on what we are waiting for…

-Charles Stanley

Mt. Washington summitAll her wishes, wants and desires

She wanted at once fulfilled..

The overflowing cup of her patience

Was always to the very brim filled.

She wanted instant gratification

Irrespective of the need

Her hands raised in supplication

She would pray fervently indeed.

As a five year old she had

Quite a precocious conviction

That what she wanted really bad

Would soon be in her possession.

*

So the years went flying by,

She blossomed into a lovely lass

Slowly she came to realize why

Her dreams had been made of glass.

First love tugging at her heart’s strings,

Arduous search for gainful employment,

Taught her patience was a virtuous thing,

Leading to eventual enjoyment.

*

The more you wait for things to come

The sweeter the fruits they bear

Patience always accompanies wisdom

So wait for what you hold dear!
