Patience is the ability to count down before blasting off


"Patience is the ability to count down before blasting off."
- Unknown

Obedience is the fruit of faith; patience, the bloom on the
fruit.
- Rossetti

When a person's faith seems to collapse without warning, one can
be sure it has been the result of inner conflicts--the termites of disobedience.
- Quinton J. Everest


"A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back." KJV
Proverbs 29:11

"A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control." NIV
Proverbs 29:11

Lord, I realize that I must remain faithful to Your law
and must have patience to finish this life well.
Grant that I will always be in control
and can be an example to others.
Dutch version > Geduld is het vermogen om af te tellen voor explosieven te laten ontsteken
