On Waiting...


We cannot rush the unfolding of a flower
Or improve upon its flawless, fragile bloom

We cannot hasten minutes through an hour
To by-pass lessons in life’s waiting room

We cannot hurry seasons or extend them
The naked tree must wait for spring’s consent

We cannot form God’s preordained perfection
But we can trust and wait…and be content

 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart:
 wait, I say, on the LORD. Ps. 27:14

    Yes, life requires waiting...to the point where sometimes we need to change what we are waiting for:)
