We live in a world that is increasingly desirous of instant gratification. We wake up in the morning and gulp down a bowl of instant oatmeal and drink a cup of instant orange juice, we flip on a 24 hour a day news channel to get instant news, at lunch time we drive up to the window and order a variety of instant lunches, and at dinner time we come home put a relatively instant dinner into the micro and settle back to turn our computer and instantly connect to the world wide web where we are free to put up our newest instant picture.
So used are we to our life of instant gratification, that it is becoming hard for us to realize that as much as we desire, there are still many areas of our lives where we must pull back and quietly wait. Where try as we might, and as hard as we may wish, the best thing that we can do is patiently wait for that special moment when the right person, the one who will look past our outward flaws to see and respect the person inside, will at last come along.
