My mom has always gently kidded me about how impatient I am. What can I say. There really isn’t a good excuse for impatience, and it’s something I work to over come.
Being a parent gives me a lot of oppurtonity to work on it.
Recently as a gift from the Lord, I got to upgrade my brand new one month old 3GS iphone to the brand spanking new best smartphone you can buy, the Iphone 4. Forgive me Android lovers, me and Apple have just discovered one another and we’re still in the honeymoon phase.
A great friend is purchasing my 3GS, and waiting patiently a long with me for my 4G to arrive. Some of you who live under a rock on Mars with your fingers in your ears might not know that the elusive WHITE Iphone 4 is not even available to order yet. I think this is probably a very huge marketing gimmick to make them uber-desirable. I think it’s racist, but that’s beside the point.
The other night I had a dream that I was telling my friend, the purchaser of my old phone, that I was feeling so impatient waiting for my iphone 4 to get here! (The waiting time from order to arrival is about a month.) I was explaining to my friend how frustrated I was at myself for how much I suck at being patient, and how much I want to have a patient heart. He laughed, and sympathized. In the dream an angel appears, hands my friend and I the elusive white iphone 4, and says this, “God honors the patient heart, even when it’s just an impatient heart trying to change.” We marvel over the pristine beauty of our new white iphones, and I woke up.
What does this tell me? Well, it’s pretty obvious.
Heaven is a certified Apple Distributor. I wonder if we got apple care?
