THE CROSS
The young man was at the end of his rope.  Seeing no
way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer.  "Lord,
I can't go on," he said.  "I have too heavy a cross to bear."
The Lord replied, "My son, if you
can't bear its weight, just place
your cross inside this room.  Then,
open that other door and pick out
any cross you wish."  The man
was filled with relief.  "Thank you,
Lord," he sighed, and he did as
he was told.
Upon entering the other door, he saw many crosses,
some so large the tops were not visible.  Then, he
spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord," he
whispered.  And the Lord
replied, "My son, that is the
cross you just brought in."
When life's problems seem overwhelming, it helps to look
around and see what other people are coping with.  You may  consider yourself far more fortunate than you imagined.
