One man complained that his life is too hard for him. He came to God, told him about his troubles, and asked:– Can I choose another cross for myself?
God looked at him smiling, took him to the store of crosses and said, "Choose…"
The man came into the store, looked around, and was surprised. There is such a great variety of crosses – little, big, medium, heavy and light.
The man was walking in the store for a long time looking for the littlest and lightest cross and finally found it. He then came to God and asked, "May I take this one?"
"Yes, you may," answered God. "It is your own cross."
