being faithful

I have wallowed in my own sufferings, some severe and some miserably petty, for so long, it’s an amazing relief to be able to look around and not see some catastrophe about to crash in on my head.

However, in the past couple of weeks I’ve been in a position of learning of other people’s sufferings – illnesses, deaths, estrangements from friends, etc. –

I’m selfish. My little respite is so precioius to me, I don’t want it disturbed.

But it has to be. God’s children don’t get time off for good behavior, or prolonged relief from carrying the Cross.

I’m glad I remembered that tonight – It’s not so hard to carry on when you know it’s a Divine Appointment you’re keeping.
