waiting

Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.” Elizabeth Elliot

Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice, And wait for your God continually. Hosea 12:6

advice

Don’t let anyone try to make you feel as if your lot was hard. Go ahead, and let them see that you can do the best of any of them. Young, strong, active, and with a will to do, you will succeed. Boys that work make the most useful and prosperous men. Hannah Maria Nutting Benham Knapp

My child, listen closely to my teachings and learn common sense.
