This summer I learned how to be patient with myself and others around me. To see when someone’s having a rough day, and giving them the time of day. To realize I won’t be perfect on a new task, no matter how prepared I believe I am for it. And the patience to accept that it’s okay to be imperfect. In fact, it’s in improving and striving towards the impossible goal of perfection that makes someone living in Christ.
