Patience is a Virtue...

...catch it while you can, my Mom used to say.

Of course, there is still nothing new going on at the temple lot unless you count the removal of the orange cones blocking the road or entrance off of the round-about. Which is fairly good news of course, because now I won't be blocking traffic and be a hazard when I pull over to take pictures!

But, I'm just anxious to see some action. Until then, I will practice patience.

Joseph Smith stated, “Patience is heavenly".
Elder Neal A. Maxwell linked patience and faith together when he taught: “Patience is tied very closely to faith in our Heavenly Father. Actually, when we are unduly impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His”.
I for one don't want to be guilty of asserting that I believe I know better than Him!
I love this next quote by Paul in Corinthians 9:10..."For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope..."
Interesting and a little ironic that this field, where a temple will be built must be plowed in hope. It is my "hope" that it will be "plowed" soon, until then I will try to be "patient" in my Chase.

Just found your blog on Mormon Mommy bloglist. We lived in Kearney ward about six years ago. So excited to hear about KC temple and am hoping to move back before it's done! It's really cool to follow the progress (hopefully there will be more soon!) on your blog. Reserve me a seat too!

I so needed that reminder about patience right now. Just when I was almost convinced I was out... Yes, I just need to remember to focus on that fact that Heavenly Father has the bigger picture in mind.
