Let's just get this out there: Sarah Salter is pushy. She just won't leave me alone about today's One Word At A Time blog carnival. And the topic is patience! Looks like she still has a few things to learn on that topic... And speaking of Sarah Salter, there's still time to hit up my etsy shop and help Sarah get to Sudan this summer. When (yes, I said 'when') you make a purchase, just put "Sarah" in the buyer's notes and a portion of the sale will go to support her mission trip. No, this whole post isn't going to be a commercial. But it's my blog and I can do what I want. See how I am?
Now, back to the topic at hand. Patience. I told Sarah over on Twitter that I have nothing to say on the subject. You see, I gave up patience for lent last year. It worked out so nicely, I decided to give it up permanently. I know, it's a big sacrifice, but I'm a giver that way. And I'm super holy.
This year, I'll be giving up timeliness for lent. I've actually gotten a head start this year. I still have some Christmas decorations up. So while the rest of you are being slaves to your calendar, I'll be biding my time. For lent. Maybe beyond. I mean, the whole giving up patience thing worked out so well for me... I can hardly wait until lent this year! And I can say that since I gave up patience.
Not everyone can go down the path I've chosen. From what I understand, many of you pray for more patience. You know, more is not always better. First you want a litttle bit more, then in no time at all, you want a lot more. Be happy with less, people. What will more patience get you but more need for it? Who wants that?! I say, give it up. For lent. You'll be glad you did.
