I have to be one of the most impatient people ever! I HATE TO WAIT! I think I'm learning though....who am I kidding, no I'm not!
Anonymous, the answer can be found in the Word of God.
In the Garden of Eden. Adam asked, "Lord, why did you make Eve so beautiful?"
"So that you would love her, Adam."
"But Lord, why did you make her so patient?"
"So that she would love you, Adam."
It's gotta be the definitive answer. It's in the Book.
