We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand. (Charles Spurgeon, 19th century English preacher)
Many people remember their difficulties and hold on to those memories for a long time. On the other hand, others of us appreciate our good experiences for a time, but they don’t linger in our minds. Life would be so much more pleasant if we could just learn from the tough times and move on. Remembering and reciting the blessings will really fill our minds with lasting joy.
Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning (Psalm 30:5).
