Years ago when we lived in Brazil someone asked Don Johnson, a missionary in Belem, Para, Brazil which is right on the equator, if he ever got used to the heat.
He said, "No. I just get used to being hot."
Here's a quote I like...
Patience with God is FAITH(I got that from Julia Johnson on Facebook awhile back. Thanks, Julia!)
Patience with self is HOPE
Patience with others is LOVE
