STOP AND THINK  – All things strike a balance: a dull party, for instance, gets you to bed at a decent hour. (Anonymous)

That’s a humorous way of looking at life, isn’t it? And we can be grateful for such times in life, when difficult or unpleasant events are balanced out by something that distracts us and makes life more enjoyable. We should be more alert to look for the positive balance in the disagreeable situations we may encounter.

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. . . . I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation (Philippians 4:11-12).
