This and That – Butter and Concrete.

Thought for the Day – “The same sun that softens butter, hardens concrete.” Are you experiencing tragedy in your life? Only lemons, never lemonade? Have family or friends hurt you with their actions and words? You have a choice. Either you will soften your heart with forgiveness or hardened it with anger and hate. Do you ask yourself, “Why did God allow this to happen to me?” I don’t know the answer to why He did. But I do believe with all my heart that God’s in control, so trust Him. Perhaps He’s reminding you that it’s life’s valleys, not the mountaintops, that make you what you are. Softened butter or hardened concrete? Which one are you? Big hug.
