Patience often has a negative connotation. For example, I must have patience to endure this long meeting, patience to endure this cold or illness and even patience to let my “oops-I-just-cut-my-hair-too-short” hairstyle grow out. However, no matter the situation, we are called to trust in God, to wait and watch for what unfolds and for the yeast to work. To live a life of daily bread is to know that patience can be a positive experience when we are able to be at peace and encounter everything in wide-eyed anticipation.
