Day 1: Welcome To Reality
"It is the best of times and the worst of times" (Charles Dickens)
"A time to be born and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to keep silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace" (Ephesians 3:1-8)
"It is the best of times and the worst of times"~
"Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid].
Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away,
yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day.
For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble]
is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond
all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]!
So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable" (2 Corinthians 4: 16-18)
Even though "It is the best of times and the worst of times"
