Patience is a virtue. My grandmother used to say this to me often and I just thought it was words until I grew into adult hood and realized that this statement was as true as could be. And very effective when patience is something you use.

hi, In any given situation, life cannot hold unto us what future heaven's had already prepared for us. Patience and Perseverance hold the key in order for us to get it. Patience (and perseverance) is not only a virtue, it's already a necessity.

I know what you mean. I don't remember who first told me about truly being patient, but I know it works. I don't even know when I started taking it to heart that I need to learn to be more patient. I do remember however when I was in church and my pastor was talking about being patient. The things he said just really hit me like wow he's so right about that. Of course, I do forget every now and then. But for the most part I'm usually pretty patient.
