I know, it's a virtue. Something everyone needs in their life. I envy other people of it. I strive for it in my own life.
So often I fall short. I snap. I lose my temper. I discipline out of anger rather than love and teaching. I yell.
If it's something that's so important to our lives, why is it so hard to attain? I pray on a daily basis for patience. There are some days where my patience level is on high gear and I feel on top of the world.
Today is not one of those days, unfortunately. Today is a day where I would pay any price for just an ounce more of patience.
