A friend tells me his wife now has shingles. The discomfort—unbelievable! And this on top of her chronic muscle pain.
He wasn’t complaining for her. Quite the opposite—he was impressed with her!
She’s always kind, even to cashiers and waiters, usually ending with “…and God bless you.”
I find it easy to focus on my own pain and aggravation. But like her, maybe I can focus less on my issues.
After all: “The sufferings of this present time aren’t even worthy to be compared to the glory that will be revealed…” (Romans 8.18)
