Be Patient …

Patience with others is Love,
Patience with self is Hope,
Patience with God is Faith.
 — Adel Bestavros

Be patient, my friends; time rolls rapidly away; our longing has its end.  The hour will strike, who knows how soon? —  when the maternal lap of everlasting Love shall be opened to us, and the full peace of God breathe around us from the palmy summits of Eden.
— Friedrich Wilhelm Krummacher

Not without design does God write the music of our lives.  Be it ours to learn the time, and not be discouraged at the rests.  If we say sadly to ourselves, “There is no music in a rest”, let us not forget “there is the making of music in it”.  The making of music is often a slow and painful process in this life.  How patiently God works to teach us!  How long He waits for us to learn the lesson!
— John Ruskin
