My mother was Italian, and I can remember one word that she insisted on teaching me. The Italian word was Paciencia, which in English means patience! ~ Bill Greguska
James 1:2-8 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Do You Think You Have Enough Patience?
Patience does not just naturally happen overnight. Our patience increases and strengthens as we trust in God’s perfect will and timing.
The next time you have to wait for something, look for ways to make the most of the situation you are involved in.
For example, if you are in a line at the store, use the time to talk with others, or pray, and ask God to give you patience, especially if you are in a hurry.
Ask God to show you how to be content in your circumstances. ~ Bill Greguska
