“The number you are trying to reach has been disconnected.” Ever hear that? It means the people you’re attempting to contact have closed, or moved, or died, or gave you a wrong number, perhaps even on purpose. How rude! The same can happen with the mail, according to Elvis, whose postman brought his letter right back saying, “Return to sender, address unknown. No such person, no such zone.”
“It’s just my cross to bear.” I’ve heard people say that phrase about the dumbest things. We tend to say it about things that annoy us, inconvenience us, or maybe cost us time or money. It reveals that we really haven’t a clue what it means to take up our cross.
What do you think you would do?
