I have been told over and over never to pray for patience. God will send you many things that will try your patience until you finally break and LEARN to be patient. It is not granted to you like a wish it is developed like a muscle!
That being said, Mike and I have really been developing our patience muscle. Our house has been on the market for 2 months. Everyone says the house is perfect. It is 5 bedrooms and 41/2 baths of perfect! It is over 3700 square feet of clean, new, fresh perfect. Priced right, great value, low maintenance. That being said, it has not sold.
I know many of you have gone through this same frustration. Trying to keep a house clean AT ALL TIMES with children and pets and life happening. You will definitely get your patience muscle strengthened.
