Cure for impatience

Frederick Buechner, theologian, Presbyterian Minister, and author. He put into words what God has been working in me.  Today is the day to be lived.  Impatience about what is yet to come is frittering away the moments that are most important.  The here and now.  So take these words written years ago as a pledge that impatience has been abandoned and patience has come.  Love is patient and love lives in the precious moments of today!


“Today is the point to which all your yesterdays have been leading since the hour of your birth.

It is the point from which all your tomorrows will proceed until the hour of your death. If you were aware of how precious today is, you could hardly live through it.

Unless you are aware of how precious it is, you can hardly be said to be living at all."

One thought on “Cure for impatience

  1. We really do not arrive to the knowing of precious life until it is either taken, or threatens to be. Yes, life is to be lived, cherished, discovered. All who partake are changed by it, for good, or not. I choose to be changed into the likeness of His Son, somehow. Cherishing the moments with those I love.
