When Medium and Life Won’t Let You In

Chin up. Shoulders back. See if that works

Yes, yes, yes. I know. You have your troubles

You might find this a bit too cynical. We’ll see.

I’m not laughing at you

I think I am laughing at me.

This morning I read about this chap

His name is Paul — St. Paul the apostle, you know, the bossy one from Tarsus.

And here’s how Paul responded to all his ‘irritations’

Get that?

In spite of all those appalling experiences — any ONE of which would have set me on a speaking tour of the U.S. collecting love offerings with my horror story — Paul was not crushed, not in despair, not abandoned, not destroyed.

Hmmm

I might need to reconsider my thoughts about my ‘irritations’.
