One more thing about Billy Graham
My road that led to prison

Lessons learned while in prison

I was talking to a friend this morning who talked about a struggle with bitterness.  My friend has had some real bumps and grinds along the way, along with more down the road.  Some of the best advice I ever got was from a guy in prison.  He said:

Bitterness is a poison you swallow and you expect the other guy to die.

I'm sure he heard it from somebody else.  But that's pure wisdom.  I was convicted after he said it.  Thinking back, my bitterness has only hurt me.  I've found the answer for dealing with it, but it's a process.  For the most part, I think I've kept my bitter feeling towards some others under wraps which is probably even more destructive.  Prison can be a real learning factory.
