I just want to encourage you all to be patient. I know that it seems hard to do when you are waiting for something to happen in your life, but understand that patience is more than being still. Patience is a strength. It aids you in difficult situations. You learn patience by dealing with difficulties because those moments help you realize that even when things are tough the reward of receiving what you are waiting for is worth it and you will also strengthen your character by developing a calmness in the midst of chaos. You remind yourself of things that you have overcome in the past and you have hope that the next time you have a difficult moment you will get through it. I hope that everyone will remember to be patient this week as you work towards your goals and when that beautiful surprise comes, I hope that you will smile and realize how much stronger you are for waiting.
