T.S. Eliot ponders, “If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”
This time of year life’s moments can tailgate, collide and stack up like the freeway at rush hour. We’re celebrating graduations, engagements and weddings. First-time parents are announcing the gender of their pre-born “womb mates.” And, oh yes, some of us are finally aging.
Life contains both highs and lows. It’s a package deal – you can’t have one without the other. By the way, how are you coping?
Paul can relate. He experienced both extreme suffering (to the point of being beheaded by Caesar) as well as extreme success. His secret sauce: “I can face anything because Jesus Christ is my strength.”
Like I said, how are you coping?
