Aging Beauty, Missoula, Montana

"...The creation waits in eager expectation... in hope that [it] will be liberated from its bondage to decay....But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently." - Paul the Apostle, Letter to the Romans, Chapter 8

When I slow down to enjoy creation, I glean increased patience, desperately needed, as I am not so good at waiting. I guess the better thing to pray for is not patience, but hope, which excels at waiting.

(Plus, it seems that whenever I've prayed for more patience, I end up with a trying situation, which of course, provides the opportunity to exercise my weak-ish patience muscles....)
