I Wait: Angel of Patience

I Wait  (Julia Margaret Cameron, Google Art Project)

Blessed are those who wait.
The globe whistles past them.
The sharpest bit of the world
doesn't deter their gaze
from the promised direction.
Ulla Hahn
I looked up the word patient in the dictionary:  "Bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint; steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity." 
Years ago a friend wisely advised:  Never pray for patience.  You'll get so many opportunities to practice it...instead pray that you are thankful that you already have patience. 

 Waiting patiently in this era of instant manifestation is a lost virtue.  Aha... my computer just flashed an error message to test mine -- what timing!  
God's angels realize that we are a work in progress.  In truth, we are already complete and perfect in His Love, but it takes patience to recognize our spiritual Identity. 
While writing this now my little cat Angel is on my lap, staring up at me so lovingly.  Purring, she is a reminder that love is patient and kind. 
A test of patience involves taking time to be loving, no matter how trying a situation may be.  Love is the answer. 
 "Infinite patience brings immediate results." (A Course in Miracles) 
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
