Life is like an ice cream cone…you have to learn to lick it. (Charlie Brown, “Peanuts” cartoon)
Is life like an ice cream cone because it’s gone so quickly? Or because it’s really so tasty? Or because, if you don’t deal with it properly, you’ve lost the potential good of it? If you didn’t learn to lick an ice cream cone, you’d surely have a mess and miss out on all the good it promised. We have to learn how to deal with life to really enjoy it.
To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God (Ecclesiastes 5:19).
