While I'm in awe of these tree giants, if I were a tree, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be a Redwood. I'm a let's just hurry up and grow a couple hundred feet in a week kind of girl, not a let's work and grow a little at a time for the next 1,000 years!
I want my book written and done by the weekend, I want to change for the better over night., I want to learn that new skill or concept in an hour. Slow, almost imperceptible growth is tough for me.
So I've decided instead of gazing up at the 100 feet or so of growth ahead of me, I'm going to pay more attention to how far I've come and trust the Master Gardener that inch by inch, year by year, I'll grow to His liking.
Do you find waiting easy? What have you done to learn patience? How do you look at your own growth?
