PATIENT LOVE

Logo reduced for Website .com

One of the most popular quotes of all time about LOVE is from the bible in Corinthians 13:4-7 which begins with “Love is patient, love is kind…” I find it so very interesting that the very first word used to describe love in this well known verse is the word patient. When I look up the word patient in the dictionary this is what I found – “able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious”.

I was born in the month of May and my horoscope is Taurus. One of the character traits we are known for, is lack of patience. Over the years, I can see my own growth in this area. In the past I used to just cut people out if they weren’t giving me what I wanted. It took some maturing for me to realize I was really just cutting myself off from some wonderful experiences and if I just allowed others to be who they are, I would see a different result. Sometimes that is really rather difficult especially when you can see things in others that they are unable to see for themselves. I am learning to have patience. It’s like a muscle and with practice we can develop it and it becomes stronger over time. I have realized when we have patience it helps us to grow.

I feel in today’s society, as a whole, there is a tendency to discard people and relationships much too quickly. If a challenge arises, I agree that it would be nice sometimes to just walk away and not have to deal with it. However, in order to CREATE GREAT LOVE in our life I am certain that having patience is a key ingredient.

I encourage you to practice some patience this week. You know in your heart when something is worth waiting for.

My picture this week is a bracelet I saw in a store and bought for myself. Now every time I look at my wrist I am reminded simply to LOVE.

  1. Bravo Angel S!!! Patience. The word ‘suffering’ in the definition is the key for me. We never need to suffer if we choose to look at everything from the perspective of Divine Timing … Go out and Play while your waiting for what every it is/ Release the idea of it coming to you or ‘happening’ at all! Healthy Detachment. There are instances when some Thing or some One is just not meant for us and it may just be a very Good thing when it appears to not work out. However, Healthy Detachment, Loving Allowance and Patience are our best tools for speedy Manifestation of our Hearts Desires. I’m CERTAIN of it, lol 😉 Many Blessing! XOXO

    • Thank you Jeffrey for thoughtfully taking the time to comment on my post. I love discussing the topic of LOVE! I know the word ‘detachment’ is used a lot. I honestly prefer not to use it because it makes me feel a bit sad. It makes me feel like I am cutting off all the good stuff and it feels so harsh and final to me. I like using the word ALLOWING, that feels much more open and free to me. I know they are all just words but a little tweaking really helps me to feel better. I know what you are saying – Let go of the specifics and go more general, paint the picture of how you want your life to be in broad brush strokes by saying things like “A relationship that is …..(fill in the blank for yourself) feels good to me.”

      I also don’t believe in the phrase “Meant to be” anymore. I used to, but now that I know I have the power to create things the way I want them. I have changed that statement to “When I focus on what makes me feel good, what I want shall be.”

      Lots of love
