"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is."
This struck me today. Not because it is always easy to understand the will of the Lord, but because it seems like if we made that the focus... understanding, looking for the reason, rather than complaining or wishing life were another way... life would be a lot better. :) If we start trying to understand, then we're on the right track, and not caught in the bog of "why me" or "this stinks" (as bogs do)... but we're past that, to the place where we realize that there is a reason, and that we are supposed to learn something, and so we're intent on finding out what that is. Today, let's try to be wise (or at least not unwise), and search for the meaning and the understanding rather than denying reality or complaining about it. I think it will make us happier... and who knows, maybe we'll learn something as well. :)
