Flying for hot chocolate, not the cups a re-post

Lately, I seem to be a chocolate kick! Maybe it is because I had the Coke cake for my birthday. For those of you who have never had a piece, I cannot do it justice by describing it. I will post the recipe at a later date.

The passage below caused me to think about the things I place emphasis on in my life. Are you stressing over the imperfections in your life? Read on.

Hot Chocolate

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to
visit their old university professor. The conversation soon turned into
complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went to the kitchen and
returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups
-porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking, some expensive and
some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the chocolate.

After all the students had a cup of chocolate in hand, the professor said:

"If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want
only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.
Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the chocolate. In most
cases, it's just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we

"What all of you really wanted was chocolate, not the cup, but you
consciously went for the best cups...and then began eyeing each others

"Now consider this: Life is the chocolate, and the jobs, houses, cars,
things, money and position in society are the cups.

They are just tools to hold and contain life, and the type of cup we have
does not define nor change the quality of life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the chocolate
God has provided us."

"God brews the chocolate, not the cups . . . enjoy your chocolate."

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect, it means you've decided to
see beyond the imperfections. Live in peace and peace will live in you

The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.
Genesis 31:49
I walked a mile with Pleasure
She chatted all the way,
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow
And never a word said she;
But oh, the things I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me!
