STOP AND THINK – Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way. (Isak Dinesen, pen name of Karen Blixen, Danish author)

When times are good and life is easy, we are often blind to the beauty around us. In reality, of course, nothing has changed except our circumstances. Dinesen also writes, “So many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.” So, when we face really difficult times, we must not worry but look for the truly beautiful in life.

[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart. (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
