Hyacinth emerging



I'm praying for patience until things settle down and I feel less busy or else patience to get used to being this busy.

What do you need to be patient about?

cara's "big news" on her blog... she promised she'd tell monday, and she said it won't be until tomorrow!!! i HATE, absolutely HATE surprises....

patience.... um... definitely need patience about our impending (if ever) move to hawaii.... it's getting better though... much better...

oh, total random question, kim... are you a night owl?? it seems like you might be...

Darla said...

oh, and i LOVE, LOVE the flower... beautiful

Kim from Kansas said...

Minty, will you know in a couple of weeks?

Yeah Darla, wonder what's up with Cara...

Regarding your question,guess I'm a morning person (work at 6:30 a.m.) who would love a midmorning nap because half the month I wake up in the middle of the night. Then I want to go to bed before 10 because I read before I go to sleep. My mind wanders if I don't read and then can't fall asleep. Are you a night owl?

Kim from Kansas said...

Oh, and I HATE to exercise in the morning...I'm an afternoon exerciser.

Minty said...

Kim-

I could find out any day and it could be another month...

Ugh.

Myself.

God.

I think I need grace more than patience for other people - or is that the same thing?

Darla said...

yes, i think i could be considered a night owl!! i drink coffee at night though (not decaf) DUH! so that could possibly be the problem. although, i am NOT a morning person and would sleep in until noon if i could. when my mother has the children, i do just that. i don't know why i even asked that... ha! sorry... just something random that popped into my head. now i feel weird for asking... ha ha... just ignore me! :-)

now, back to the post....

meriam webster say: grace = unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration (renewal or revival) or sanctification (spiritual formation)

patience = bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint;
manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain; not hasty or impetuous; steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity; able or willing to bear

i would have thought patience and grace could be the same.... i don't think they are... do you??

DARLA ANNE and KIM ANNE--y'all better stop bein' ugly!!!

I just drank 3 cups of coffee. I think I'm going to be a night owl tonight for sure.

kim, i loved the post---but by the time i got done reading cara's comment i had to go back and read it again. i'm not sure what i love more about blogging...posts or comments.

zany girls...to think none of us would have met if hannah and i hadn't gone to school together, i moved in next to kim and joey hadn't moved to san fran...and hannah hadn't moved to chicago where minty moved...and darla hadn't gone to school with cara...etc, etc, oooooo...just had to bring this up.

back to the point. i know that this is exactly why i love Easter and Spring so much. words like patience and grace and new and spring "come up" all around us.

He rose out of the rocky soil like a tender young shoot.

it all really is amazing.

i need to have patience for clients during the tax season. i really don't care what they bought their stock for 7 years ago. i really don't care if they are sitting in their cpa's office right now. oops, sorry. i'll really try to be more patient now.

So maybe grace for patience?
