Well would you look at that...back again? If this isn't nostalgia then I don't know what is. Today I was reading in my bible and came across this section that talked about patience. I am telling you some days I open that book and it's like God is speaking directly towards me. I LOVE when that happens! I have a study bible so it wasn't pertaining to a particular verse, but more so pointing out all the various people in the bible that had patience with Christ during some of their hardest days. Recently I have found myself in a certain situation that had me praying a lot, but I got to a point where I didn't really know what I was praying for. I am not a very patient person especially when it comes to such important things. I want to know what is going to happen, when it is going to happen, and how it is going to happen. But truthfully as hard as the "waiting period" may be, I have kind of realized we can learn a lot when we wait. We get so focused on the big picture that we forget to look and ask ourselves why we are waiting in the first place.
This find in the scripture had me thinking about patient people and I couldn't help but think about my Mom who has been at Dallas Market for almost 8 days now. Market for her is a really big job. It is a lot of work and it is exhausting to say the least. And with three businesses now, this is the longest she has ever stayed. I got to go into Dallas for a couple of days and spend time with her and the rest of the CH gang, which is one of my favorite things about being in DFW. My mother has gone to Market for 20 something years now and all those years when I was still at home I never really understood how going to Dallas to shop could be so hard. I have enjoyed getting to spend time with her at market...she truly is #sheboss there. I also got to take my friends with me. Oh what a great time we had! We also went to some delicious dinners...like SO GOOD. But since Market is almost over I guess that means I have to actually go to the grocery store now :/ Congrats, Mom, on a successful market and thank you for reminding my how patience can pay off!
I asked God to help me out cause I didn't really know what to do, but I am thinking that after this morning he is telling me to be patient. I cannot begin to tell you how good that feels. Trust him. Talk to him. He will help you out.
Be patient people. God is telling me to do that therefore, here I am telling you in case maybe you needed to hear it too. Things will work out. Be patient. Stay thankful.
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
