Divine power


Essence of The Creator

Flowing into us


Miraculous change

Precious and rare

Painful to birth

Beautiful to hold


Problems dissolve

Tragedies endured

Strengthened in battle

Growing through pain


Bringing peace



Sharpened vision


Beauty discovered

Doors opened

Hearts changed

True smiles


Rare treasure

Ours to use

To call upon

To grow

-Gina Valley

It amazes me how much peace and happiness is triggered simply by being patient.  Still, I don’t call upon my patience nearly enough.  What’s helping you develop patience?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing about it.

    Bringing peace



    Sharpened vision

    I love this part. It’s the turning point that begins to demonstrate to us just how empowering patience can be.

    How do I do better with patience? I try to remember the example I’m setting for my girls. I can’t expect them to be grace under pressure when they have copious examples of their dad losing his stuff when the heat is on.

    If I want to be the cool daddy, I can’t get so hot under the collar.

    Excellent stuff here, Gina!

      Thank you so much for the compliment! I’m so glad you related to my poem.
      I agree with you about trying to set an example for our children. I think that has been the biggest push I have received to grow my patience. They are always watching. I know my actions speak more loudly to them than my words do.
