But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Why Do I Wait?
I spent the better part of Sunday cleaning my side of the storage unit the garage. Since the door is closed most of the time it is easy to forget my least favorite portion of the house. It is easier to just step out and throw place gently what ever is in the house that has no proper location. After a few months the tentative grasp on organization out there collapses and chaos is in charge again. The excuses are many: other things to do, tired, too cold, too hot, need to blog, need to read, need to craft. But the rewards were worth the effort today.
After I completed my work I sat and talked to my DCG. Quite impressed with myself, I told him I felt as if a large weight had been lifted. Then it occurred to me…If it felt so good, why did I wait?
