Are you wearing an apron or a bib today? It is a law of human nature that when you are overwhelmed and overburdened, you are more resentful of those who appear to be cruising through their day. If you doubt this, ask any woman in the kitchen on Thanksgiving Day or the parent of a teenager.
Are you hot and bothered? Are people irritating you more than usual? Maybe you need to strip down and lighten up! You may be hauling around a ball and chain you’re not even aware of.

All this fast living has made us into an impatient people who are fearful and frustrated with uncertainty and all things we cannot control.
There are valuable lessons to be learned and blessings to behold through the gifts of the present if you’ll just embrace patience, uncertainty, surrender and that four-letter word we all hate, WAIT!
In the WAIT through uncertainty are the blessings of ROMANCE, MYSTERY, JOY, REVELATION, and DESTINY.
It’s better to burn out like a brilliant comet than to rust out like an unused pipe.
