404px-Kinkaku-Snow-5.jpg“…sometimes we look upon the prosperity of men and think, this man lives well and comfortably, but if we only know what troubles he has in his family, in his possessions, in his dealings with men, we would not think his position so happy.  A man may have a very fine new shoe, but nobody knows where it pinches him except the one who has it on; so you think certain men are happy, but they may have many troubles that you little think of.”  Jeremiah Burroughs “The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment” (Banner of Truth Puritan Paperbacks) p. 104
