|I must honestly confess I don’t know how good I have it until I don’t have it so good.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story So, I'm sitting here trying not to shiver too much and drinking a very hot cup of coffee. My wife makes many things well, but nothing quite as well as hot coffee. What she doesn't realize is, as I'm drinking my hot coffee, I'm thinking of summer. I'm not sure who was the first one who said it, but I think I agree with it, “Opposites attract.” And nothing could be more opposite than my winter wife and her summer husband. As I thought about this it came to me that the reason I appreciate summer so much is because of the winter. It is during the wintertime that I have this longing for the summer weather. If it wasn't for winter, I'm not sure I would appreciate summer as much as I do. I always have a religious twist to things that are happening in my life. As I thought of this it came to my mind that the trials in my life cause me to appreciate the amazing grace of God. It wasn't for the hard times I wouldn't appreciate the good times. I like what James says about this. “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12). I must honestly confess I don't know how good I have it until I don't have it so good. Tweet
