Ive heard of a prayer that goes something like this, God give me patience and give it to me now. Waiting can be difficult for many of us. Standing in a checkout line. Sitting in doctors office. Waiting on a delayed flight at the airport. Meeting someone who is late for coffee. Waiting for the arrival of a new grandchild. Waiting for our tax return. Waiting for a freezer of homemade ice cream to finish. Waiting for the pizza to be delivered. Yet, as I grow older Ive learned to appreciate waiting. I really do enjoy those times of sitting or kneeling in wet grass waiting for the sun to touch the horizon as it rises or sets. Walking the streets waiting for a photo opportunity to present itself. Waiting silently in prayer or mediation. Waiting is a teacher if we let it. Waiting can be a discipline if we let it. Waiting can have special rewards if we let it. As Elizabeth Taylor says, It is very strange that the years teach us patience that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting. Are we learning to wait patiently or wanting it now?

Beautiful pearly tones and a fine composition.
Despite the modern planes, this picture has a timeless and tranquil quality to it.
