March 2015 Visiting Teaching Message

"Patience is a virtue."  Developing patience, however, takes time and doesn't come easily for most.  The March visiting teaching message is: "The Attributes of Jesus Christ:  Long-suffering and Patient."

  1. Ah... it DOES take practice. Cassidy always tells me I have a lot more practicing to do on this very thing. LOL

    It doesn't come easily for me.

    I LOVE that quote Kristi!!

    1. I think most people could benefit from more practice--I know I can!

      Isn't that quote great? Though English isn't his first language, Dieter Uchtdorf seems to have a way with words.

  2. Yes, something I admit I need more of :))

  3. We're all four year olds inside, aren't we? Is it my turn? Is it my turn? Can I go now? Can I do it? I want a turn! I want to go next!

    (Can you tell I just got home from preschool?!)

  4. Patience is a lesson that is really hard for young children to learn. Amara is often so anxious to tell me something that she doesn't even hear what I am saying.

    1. And it isn't that easy for adults, sometimes, either!

  5. (aka 'acceptance'… and what a remarkably difficult process for something that is, at it's heart, very simple.) (My favorite author, Carlos Castaneda, has a term, 'the Path with Heart'… which (I believe) refers to engaging life without fear or reservations, knowing that the things beyond our control are a part of the whole and not, as often we react, personally aimed at me… the acceptance of this goes a long way (for me) to approaching the sentiment in your message.)
    cool

    1. The phrase "eternal perspective" comes to mind.
