Soul Food #103



"A waiting person is a patient person. The word patience means the willingness to stay where we are and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something hidden there will manifest itself to us."
— Henri J.M. Nouwen

  9. The little critters were at the right place at the right time..Seeing a caterpillar on a moth and this adorable pesky chipmunck has leads the life of Riley here from pond to gardens to fountain..well sitting so innocently on an angel..cracked me up.

    Tis very hard to be patient for things to change or happen..
    I am reminded of Dr Wayne Dyer and his saying just be.. :)

  10. Patience is in our everyday life, in illness, love, friendships etc. We learn a lot from being Patient. We hope or wish for things and sometimes it doesn't come right away or it is shown in another way....
    "Patience is the compainon of wisdom"
    St. Augustine

    Your photo's are peaceful~
