God gives wisdom (the knowledge of how to act in a Godly and upright manner) generously (with earnestness and sincerity) and ungrudgingly (without making us feel foolish) to you when you ask. God kindly and with care teaches you to be like Jesus. Amen.

MM 2/9/15 Patience's job description from Debby Bellingham on Vimeo.
What? James says let patience do it’s job. Let is the same word used in old marriage ceremonies, “to have and to hold.” We are to make a vow, a promise to patience; it has a job to do in our life and we are to embrace it’s work. Hang in there! Please pray for me, I have a presentation to do tonight and then I’m home free. I’m running on fumes and have a cold to boot. Love you all. D
