Finding the Joy, Part 2

If you were not enthralled with Stephanie's story last week, then hop onward to another blog and check back tomorrow. If you were wishing for the next piece, here it is.

Stephanie has this quote by Washington Irving pasted to her refrigerator:

"There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity."

It is true that adversity is what has the most potential to build character, to test strength, to renew faith, and to spark hope. When life is tough, may we all rise to the challenge at hand.

But, when life is good, let us paste this on our refrigerator as well, and give a nod to what we have been given by adversity. Remember to be thankful for every day and every blessing received.

Wishing you Joy this Season...
