A man lost his job and a sizeable fortune during a recession. To add to his sorrow, his precious wife died; yet he tenaciously held to his faith - the only thing he had left. One day when he was out searching for employment, he stopped to watch some men who were doing stonework on a large church building. One of them was chiselling a triangular piece of stone. “Where are you going to put that? he asked. The workman said, “Do you see that little opening up there near the spire? Well I’m shaping this stone down here so that it will fit in up there.” Tears filled the man’s eyes as he walked away, for the mason’s words gave new meaning to his troubled situation.
