Wedding Day

My niece is marrying the man of her dreams today. She was willing to wait as long as it took for Prince Charming to arrive. And when he did arrive, he was definitely worth the wait!

How often we settle for less because we are impatient. We despise waiting for anything. We want what we want when we want it--which is NOW! And, because we are good at manipulating circumstances, we can get something now. Something--but is it the best? 

There's an old adage that says "He who acts in haste repents at leisure."

I don't want to live with regret. Instead, I want to be more like my niece, willing to wait for God's best. And, while I'm waiting, I can spend time getting to know King Charming--the Creator of all things bright and beautiful.
