Or shall we use the old adage, is the glass half full or half empty? A positive attitude might not make things easier, but it definitely makes them more bearable. But more than that, it inspires those around you to embrace the better side of the story. I get asked many days if the weather in East Texas is good for grapes? And as a believer, I believe that both are in the hands of the Lord and he is good. But for some people, when it is hot it is not good, when it is windy it is not good, when it is dry it is not good and when it is wet it is not good. That same weather attitude rules their lives.
We all have a cross to bear. It doesn't matter how heavy or light or big or small, it is ours and nobody else knows or understands. It's almost like a shadow that is with you wherever you go. But if you always look at the shadow, you will never see the sun shine and that is always brighter and bigger than that little shadow you throw. We are so blessed and there is so much brightness to enjoy that there is no reason to waller. And I see it time and time again that a visit to Kiepersol brightens perspectives and highlights blessings that so often are shadowed by place. By lifting the weak, you strengthen yourself and encourage the positive that makes life so much fun. And if your positive and happy, you are part of us at Kiepersol - you are always welcome.
