Always remember that if you pray for patience, you will not one day wake up and find yourself more patient. Actually, you will find yourself (of no fault of your own) in situations where you are forced to be patient whether you like it or not.
If you also pray for a kinder gentler spirit, you will not be amazed one morning to find yourself to be a sweet gentle soul. Oh, no, that isn't how it works at all. You will constantly find yourself in situations that wrestle your conscious into being kind, gentle and sweet even when your first instinct is to be mean, rough, and salty.
I just wanted to let you all know that I am getting all of my prayers answered in abundance these days.
That's all . . . carry on.
Until next time . . .
