Quote of the Day

The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s ‘own,’ or ‘real’ life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life—the life God is sending one day by day; what one calls one’s ‘real life’ is a phantom of one’s own imagination. This at least is what I see at moments of insight: but it’s hard to remember it all the time.
--C. S. Lewis

  1. Oh my goodness. I sure needed to read this today. I think I go through life wanting everything to work out my way. I think that's hedonistic and wrong. Thanks for posting these wise words.
