24/31 days of madeleine

“I learn my lessons slowly, seldom once for all. Continually, they have to be learned and relearned, not with solemnity, but with awe and laughter and joy.”

Can I get an amen to this one?

Time.

and time.

and time again.

I have to learn things the hard way, and even still I have to learn things the multiple time hard way, just in case the first four times were the exception.

Though I often get frustrated with myself, I am constantly reminding myself that God continues to give me opportunities to grow and learn. If he has enough grace to say “Alright Stephanie, let’s try this again…” then I must humbly accept the grace and patience of God and get busy on my studies.
