In my previous post I listed the five newest saints of the Catholic Church.
These holy men and women, and all the saints, are meant to serve as models for us. They point to our Creator and our ultimate home: heaven.
“All will be right with time and a little patience.” ~ St. Mary MacKillop
I wrote a post about waiting last year. At that time, I was in a personal situation that required patience.
Well, I’m still in a period of waiting and being asked to practice patience at this very moment!
So, I’d like to share this post with you again. If you read the original post, I recommended re-reading it here.
Waiting is a reality each of us can relate to, and there is often a lesson waiting for us…
When we’re faced with a challenging or puzzling situation, do we try to figure it out on our own or do we ask the Lord for guidance?
When we’re surprised by something that happens, or something that we hope for doesn’t occur, how do we react? Do we become worried and discouraged or do we place our lives in the Lord’s hands and trust the plan that He has for each of us?
Change can be difficult to experience and accept.
We’re creatures of habit, and we get “comfortable” with our routines.
