Yes indeed, thank you.

"There are two wolves struggling inside each of us," the old man said.
"One wolf is vengefulness, anger, resentment, self‐pity, fear . . .
"The other wolf is compassion, faithfulness, hope, truth, love . . ."
The grandson sat, thinking, then asked: "Which wolf wins, Grandfather?"
His grandfather replied, "The one you choose to feed."

(From Steve Miller's *One-Minute Promises of Comfort*)

A GLORIOUS FUTURE

"Your sorrow will be turned into joy." ~John 16:20

Little did Jesus' disciples know just how intense their sorrow would be within the next few hours. The Teacher whom they loved dearly would be torn away from them and crucified upon a cross. In great fear they would scatter and hide, totally at a loss over what to do next. Life as they knew it would come to a sudden and devastating halt.

Yet Jesus promised them their sorrow would be turned to joy. Though the tribulation that lay ahead was great, the victory that would follow would be even greater. The sorrow they endured for a few days would be well worthwhile because it meant an eternity of rejoicing.

Though Christ spoke these words in relation to His death and resurrection, the joy He promised is for all believers for all time. There is coming a day when we will no longer suffer, and our fallen, mortal bodies will become risen, immortal bodies. In that day, all the tragic results of man's fall into sin will forever cease and be replaced by all the benefits of Christ's victory over the grave. When that day comes, our sorrow will indeed be turned into joy!

BELIEVE, LIVE JOYFULLY, BREATHE DEEPLY, BE HOPEFUL, LAUGH!!!

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything You gave me.'" ~Erma Bombeck
