Patience is a virtue. When it comes to having relationships with fellow human beings it might as well be divine. Loving ones neighbor can be a significant challenge. To be fair I am not always pleasant to be with and I have my own stuff that makes people crazy. Everyone has something.
Every rose has a thorn (I heard that in a song once) and sometimes we are the rose and sometimes we are the thorn. That is a necessary truth as we don’t become full of ourselves or anything like that.
We are all in need of that thing that means that no matter what we are we are still valued, loved no matter the baggage we carry. No one is perfect. Everyone has a fault but we are also special in that imperfection. So if you are dealing with stuff know that you don’t have to go it alone. In this day we need all the support we can muster.
Friends, I hope you are doing our best. May grace be abundant. Have peace this and in the days ahead.
