Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

It both important and comforting for the Christian to remember in the days of trial and tribulation, he is on a journey. For then he will understand that misfortunes are to be expected, and that the sad street on which he is traveling will finally lead to the heavenly homeland. - C. F. W. Walther, *God Grant It!* p. 403

It is easy to become obsessed with the immediate and lose sight of the journey as a whole - and when I do this I typically am more likely to be grumpy and unsettled. I think this relates to your other post about life being "run run run" - certainly true in this household.
