View from the Garden Swing: 1Thessalonians 5:14 (Patient)

Be patient with everyone.   1 Thessalonians 5:14

A short powerful sentence and a difficult task. I do consider myself to be patient and kind. However, in day to day life, it doesn’t seem to take long for my patience to be depleted. Today I will work on being patient, considerate, and slowing down my schedule to take time to enjoy the view from the garden swing.

A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust. – Gertrude Jekyll
