Mrs. Sullivan and her little daughter Patty were outside the church watching all the comings and goings of a wedding. After the photographs had been taken, everyone had driven off to the reception, and all the excitement was over. Patty asked her mother, “Why did the bride change her mind, Mommy?
“How do you mean, change her mind?” asked Mrs. Sullivan.
“Well said the child, “she went into the church with one man and came out with another!”
Daily devotion from Beside Blessings by Charles Swindoll for November 3rd:
When we are suffering, only Christ's perspective can replace our resentment with rejoicing. I've seen it happen in hospital rooms. I've seen it happen in families. I've seen it happen in my own life.
Our whole perspective changes when we catch a glimpse of the purpose of Christ in it all. Take that away, and it's nothing more than a bitter, terrible experience.
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."-Matthew 11:28
