That's the way life goes, isn't it? We cry over what we don't have not realizing we might have cried twice as hard had we gotten it. One of the reasons the apostle Paul lived a life characterized by such joy and gratitude was because he had learned the secret of being content. He was thankful for what he had and not sorry about what he didn't have (Philippians 4:12).
