It is all how we look at things.

It is all in how we look at things.  I wrote a great example in “The Apostle’s Recipe for Happiness” called “Storm Days.”  In this story a multitude of negative events had taken place in the day.  Finally, mentally and physically drained I stood still at the end of my eight car driveway.  It was me, my driveway and a plastic snow shovel.  It was just after midnight when I began to see things as they really were and found so many things to be thankful for right down to that shovel.  As this occurred to me and I thanked God an incredible power came over me and I was filled with Spirit.  All my pain left my body and soul.  I was engulfed with an incredible energy and thought, “Time and patience.  All I will need is time and patience.”

In gratitude I found strength.  The hallway was shortened.  The door to the next level in my journey was right in front of me.  That snow shovel was not just a tool for that storm, that storm was a tool for a lifetime.

Empathy is the hallway and love is the doorway.  -Ron Ash
