AdventWord 2023: Patience


A word I tell my children quite often. As they learn about the world and society, they need to have patience. 

It is a strange concept for children to grasp, I can see that. They struggle when they want to do something and question why they cannot do it straight away. Something that as an adult we all understand. Even now it is a concept that is ever changing. With the internet, next-day shipping, and transport to go somewhere right away. When I reflect I can see that it can be easily forgotten.

A few quotes come up when looking at the word patience, all of which have a similar meaning. The one I have gone with today is:

“Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea”.

Have faith that your patience will be rewarded with a gift. As we head into winter our patience will be rewarded with spring. We must have patience that there is a plan in all things and better times ahead.
