We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our se is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all. I want the future to be better than the past. I do not want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors with which history is filled. We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we will spend the remainder of our lives.Now I know that there are no times in life when opportunity, the chance to be and do gatherso richly about my soul when it has to suffer cruel adversity. Then everything depends on whetherI raise my head or lower it in seeking help.Whenever I am struck down, in the future, by any terrible defeat, I will inquire of myselfafter the first pain has passed, how I can turnthat adversity into good. What a great opportunity that moment may present——to take the bitter root I am holding and transform it into fragrant garden of flowers.
