The gift of patience
Here’s a gift idea in this season of giving. This year, give the gift of patience. It comes direct from your heart, and involves some sacrifice on your part. It’s free, so it won’t break your bank. And Lord knows, our women’s organization, our whole church and the world community could definitely benefit if all of us were more patient with each other in the coming year. And while we’re at it, let’s try to be more forgiving too. Come to think of it, if we more closely model our lives after the one whose birth we celebrate, we will become more patient and forgiving, won’t we?
