The Cross Room

 This clipping hangs on my fridge and I read it whenever I have an attack from my two brain disorders - like today. It sure helps put things in perspective.

The Cross Room

     The young man was at the end of his rope. Seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have too heavy a cross to bear."
     The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then, open that other door and pick out any cross you wish".
     The man was filled with relief. "Thank you, Lord," he sighed, and he did as he was told.
     Upon entering the other door, he saw many crosses, some so large the tops were not visible.
     Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall. "I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered.
  And the Lord replied, "My son, that is the cross you just brought in".
