We love with all our heart but we also keep our heart light and pliable. It has space. It breathes. It waits on life to give instructions. It sings with sweetness when the winds are soft and warm. It stands with calm patience when the storm is brewing. It lets go when endings have left their irrefutable mark. It moves. It heals. It hopes.
I searched everywhere for love.
I knocked on every door
and turned over every stone.
But it was only until I returned home
that I found love
waiting for me.
A moment of Patience in a moment of Anger saves a thousand moments of Regret.
A wise man is someone who knows how to convert obstacles into resources.
The blessings that come out of pain will forever be greater than the pain is even as you have passed through it.

Patience . . . speaks of a person’s steadfastness under provocation . . .enduring ill-treatment without anger or thought of retaliation or revenge.
If we walk steadily and faithfully…God will lift us up to greater things.
