Gifts of Character – Patience

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Patience. Patience soothes our souls as we endure those things that we cannot control with a peaceful heart. We trust the process of life. Patience is about learning to see the lessons that come from waiting, not complaining, recognizing those experiences as gifts from the Universe for our growth.

Today as I reflect on the value of using patience I will remember those times when events took place that I did not like, yet they were out of my control, that later turned out to be a blessing. I may not have been patient at that time, but I did learn that receiving those events with patience, looking for the lessons that could be learned, brought blessings and peace to my life. I am confident that life unfolds the way it should, so I live in this present moment.
