I long for contentment and serenity in my life and I deserve those times. I earned them, but without life’s pain I would fail to recognize its value.
“We tend to think of the rational as a higher order, but it is the emotional that marks our lives. One often learns more from ten days of agony than from ten years of contentment.” – Merle Shain
What we forget is that we don’t ever need to experience our painful times alone. The agony of a painful experience dissipates as quickly and as silently as the entrance of OUR HIGHER POWER when called upon.
