“Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to something
unknown, something new.
And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through
some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.
And so I think it is with you;
your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,
let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstances
acting on your own good will)
will make of you tomorrow.
Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete.”
~ Pierre Teillhard de Chardin
I found this poem today and wanted to offer my post to Becca Givens of On Dragonfly Wings With Buttercup Tea https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2016/02/25/nurt-thurs-allowance/ who inspires me by her willingness to connect with others with love and light.
May your heartlight find comfort in the poem above today!
Thanks Wendy…it brightened my day so I hoped it would to someone else. I thought it was beautiful too. ♥

And comforting it was, Yvonne. Thank you.
So grateful Alan..have a lovely weekend! ♥
True indeed! When I feel frustrated about words not wanting to flow, it does help to remind myself that maybe they just need more time to percolate.
I heartily agree Meg! Just get into the flow and the words will come willingly. ♥
Thank you so much for sharing this wisdom!
You are so welcome xo

Beautiful quote. We are an impatient lot, we humans. I get tickled as my daughter can see her own lack of patience with the process and say out loud, “I want it all, I want it now, and I want it gift wrapped” then laugh really hard at herself. It puts things back in perspective. It’s the journey not the destination. 🙂
Marlene, you are a gem and I’m smiling because I feel like your daughter sometimes. Thanks for sharing and for being here with me. ♥
One can never have too many daughters . 😊
