Yes life really is like a box of chocolates, full of surprises. Some are sweet and soft centered and others are tangy and tart to the taste, while still others are sticky and difficult to chew. Then there are the rocky ones, those that make you wonder if your teeth are strong enough to chew them .
Every day is a new chocolate for us to taste , eat and digest and even though some of them are more difficult to chew, life still is sweet and we can find joy in every new day. At present I am experiencing a series of hard rocky chocolate days full of nuts which are difficult to chew.These are mainly due to having to care for two aged parents who are both ill. I realize that this is just another phase of life and that this too will come to pass. In the meantime I try to eat one nutty chocolate day at a time remembering the following.
Lamentations 3 : 21 -22 :
It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not . They are new every morning: great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness.
