I clearly got the "good handwriting gene"
Lately, WE DO HARD THINGS has been etched into my brain on a daily basis.
I was having a conversation with my friend who's boyfriend is on a ship for 6 weeks (Something for his job, he's not in the military). She was totally bummed about it and I've been talking with her almost daily.
Anyway, I was telling her that we constantly have to do hard things. Life is always challenging us. God is always challenging us. Where would the fun be if we weren't challenged?
:: We do hard things to make other things easy.
:: We do not-so-fun things so other things can be fun.
:: We workout so we can be healthy (or have a nice body).
Now those are just some examples. I truthfully cannot come up with anymore examples-- my mind is blank!
You don't want to take the easy way out, do you?
Where's the gratification in that? Where's the fun in that?
Yup, there isn't any.
