February 3, 2016 Waiting

What is it that is so hard about waiting? If you were in the service on Sunday you heard me say that I am not the best at waiting. I am learning to wait. I think our problem with waiting comes from the world in which we live. As technology progresses waiting is something we don’t have to do as much. Travel is faster, transfer of information is faster, answers to medical problems are faster. How we operate in life…
