STOP AND THINK – Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. (Marilyn Monroe, late American actress)

Monroe would probably not be thought of as a deep thinker or philosopher, but this statement is meaningful. Disappointments in life often leave us shattered and hopeless. What we had yearned for didn’t work out; out plans fell apart. But many could testify that such failure sometimes provided an opportunity to pursue and achieve something of even greater value.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28).
