In her life changing article, “Patience: More Than Waiting,” Hillary Olsen discusses important aspects of patience that we can all learn from. I cannot improve on her article, and I wouldn’t try, so I will keep my comments short.

My friend Ron told me that his mother’s regular admonishment was,

“All things come to those who wait:
To the small,
And to the great.
Nothing ever comes too late.”

I know the damage I have caused in my life with impatience, and the blessings I have enjoyed from patience. Not excuses or avoidance, not laziness or an uncaring attitude, but logical, disciplined patience and the submission to God’s timetable. Please read the article above; I know you will like it.
