I spent an hours in one of the kids' classrooms cutting out minuscule pieces of paper pizza toppings. Probably about eleventy billion of them. So many, in fact, that I had to take the rest home to finish cutting. When I got home, I broke out my Heinkle scissors given to me by Tommy and Ellen and whipped out those remaining pizza toppings in a jiffy!
The job was still difficult and tedious, but my tool was different.
It's kind of like life. It will be tedious and hard- it's life, after all. But you choose what tools to use to navigate the path. My recommendation is to choose the really good tools: prayer, scripture study, faith and hope. Most importantly- love.
