Were we really created to be “happy” all the time? I find I often blind myself to God’s reality if I get down or depressed when I feel “my” needs are not being met.
“There is a hard truth to be told: before spring becomes beautiful, it is plug ugly, nothing but mud and muck. I have walked in the early spring through fields that will suck your boots off, a world so wet and woeful it makes you yearn for the return of ice. But in that muddy mess, the conditions for rebirth are being created.” Parker Palmer
