Three Days

Back Next

"A number of years ago I was hospitalized for severe depression. One morning, while I was sitting on the edge of my bed and spilling buckets of tears, a lady came and sat next to me. Not knowing my religious convictions, she held my hand and related the following to me:

"'The world was never sadder than on Good Friday when Christ was crucified, but just three days later, the world was never brighter than when Christ rose from the grave. Whatever your problem is today, it will seem a lot less worrisome to you if you can wait just three days.'

"This lady was not a nurse, and I have no idea who she may have been. I have clung to this thought for twelve years, and it has pulled me through many a trying time."
