Chapter 3, Page 5, Book 16

Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.

Denis Waitley

March 5th - spiritual roadblocks

A moment of patience can prevent a great disaster.

Determination is quite simply digging in, working hard and overcoming obstacles bit by bit and having patience just enough to get on and try to get where you want to go.

Today’s Patience 

William Arthur Ward

Today’s patience can transform yesterday’s discouragements into tomorrow’s discoveries. Today’s purposes can turn yesterday’s defeats into tomorrow’s determination

Patience leads us to suffer in silence, to cope with tiredness, other people's bad temper, and other injustices, uncomplainingly. 

Lent is a good time to reflect on the obstacles in our lives, the roadblocks of life that keep us from being the best that we can be.

Never quit. You are stronger than you think you are. No amount of road blocks are strong enough to stop you from achieving your goals.

I smile at this. We have one son who will NEVER suffer in silence. Then one who is patient beyond measure. Both are good guys but I do appreciate patience as time goes on! (smile)

As they say patience is indeed a virtue and does take endurance to get there. I do remember praying for more patience and then being in situations where I had to be patient. It was trying at the time to remain patient, but glad I persevered with it and am more patient than previously, but still a lot of way to go :)

I've learned not to pray for patience....when I have...I end up with another trial...LOL.
Good words today, dear one.

I think more people are coming to respect the idea of patience. (It's sooooo hard!)
Recently we at work were each given a copy of (the book) Emotional Intelligence -- that contained a specific code to take an on-line test, so as to get the most benefit from its contents. Well, mine came back with the highest "recommendation" to focus on taking deep breaths and remembering to count to 10. Go figure; I can't even fool the folks at EQ2! :)
