faith and patience

I love this picture of my great grandparents. Don't they look happy?
The stories that I know about them are generously sprinkled with hardship. They raised ten children on the bald old prairies for goodnesss sake. They knew heartbreak and the sort of daily grind that have caused many a couple to trip over each other running for the door.
My grandmother was a woman of great faith and patience. Somehow those two things go together. God tends to keep us waiting. James 1:3 "... the testing of your faith produces patience."
