A wonderful quote that I’m going to tattoo on my heart.

seewhywho Asked: "Hey friend, I know it's been tough, but have heart! You are more loved, cherished and appreciated than you know. As cliched as the phrase is, I feel your pain - and it's okay to hurt for a little while. But don't keep looking down - as hard as it is, look up to the Cross. Jesus knows all the hurt you're experiencing - and more. He loves you exponentially. And loves that you're being His hands and feet in loving others, even when it's hard. Chin up, dear friend! Know that you're in my prayers :D"

Answer:

jspark3000:

Thank you, my friend.  I do need the reminder that this is for His glory, from His power, and in His mission.  At times I look too long at myself, and I think such introspection gets morbid and somber.  Time to rejoice.  My chin is up!

Ferrero, the Nutella-maker, now a giant company based in Alba, Italy, uses about a quarter of the world’s hazelnut supply — more than 100,000 tons every year.
That’s pushed up hazelnut prices. And this year, after a late frost in Turkey that froze the hazelnut blossoms and cut the country’s hazelnut production in half, prices spiked even further. They’re up an additional 60 percent.
Because they’re so valuable, more people want to grow them. Farmers are growing hazelnuts in Chile and Australia. America’s hazelnut orchards in Oregon are expanding.
