    Patience

    "Things have a way of working out"
    My father used to say.
    "Don't force the issue, do your best
    and work and wait and pray."

    How many times those words return
    When life's a tangled thread...
    "Just do your best today, and leave
    To God the days ahead."

    Somewhere a Master Planner works,
    Though how we may not know....
    But in due time things will work out-
    The years have proved it so!

    Ahhh....patience. I think we all share that desire, we want patience; and we want it right now! LOL

    I always caution people though about praying for patience; the Word says "tribulation works patience" so when we pray for patience we just might come across a bunch of tribulation to mold us into patient folks! :)

    Thanks again, liked the poem very much! love, Rebel
