in a day and age of instant gratification it's good to be reminded of patience. One thing i love about living in idaho is being able to see the farms in all their different stages: prepping the ground, planting, watering, sprouting, harvesting,....it's so much like the different seasons of our lives.
While i am using the computer Lizzy is playing "house" and she set up a bed on the couch in the living room. She tucked herself in and then jumped out and said "i forgot to read the scriptures" so she got my little hymnbook that kind of looks like scriptures and pretended to read. Then she said, "oh i forgot to say my prayers" so she kneeled by her makeshift "bed" and quietly whispered a prayer. Oh how i hope she will rely on prayer throughout her life. There is power and peace in a prayerful life.
