Sunday Superthoughts: Patience

Hey everybody,

One of my biggest flaws is that I'm, by nature, very impatient. I'm not sure what in my childhood (or otherwise) has made me so, but it's something I've prayed that God help me with for more than 10 years.

Seriously.

If you know me personally, you'll know that 1) I'm always on time (or more likely, early), and 2) I don't wait long to answer emails/texts/etc. Anyway, it stems from my obsession with time/punctuality. Thankfully, Mere is a run-on-time kind of gal, which I LOVE, and I'm not driven BATTY by being made to wait.

By the way, THAT'S why I don't wear a watch - I turn freak-out crazy if I'm waiting to be somewhere.




I have noticed, however, that God has helped me with my punctuality-obsession, and even better... he paired me with Meredith so I don't have to live a life waiting on a wife. Thank you, Jesus! :)

I'm constantly remembering, especially during the busiest seasons for photographers, that we are supposed to stop from time to time, and adopt the pace of nature, who blooms at its own rate, is not dependent on others, and is perfectly happy going its own speed. The leaves in Fayetteville are absolutely gorgeous right now, and instead of go-go-go, shoot-shoot-shoot, I'm also trying to remember to look-look-look, and love-love-love.

Talk to you soon,
Dale
