"That some good can be derived from every event is a better proposition than that everything happens for the best, which it assuredly does not." 
~ James K. Feibleman ~

I guess it’s human to resist what’s unpleasant. We prefer not to think about it, not to go there, or else we chew on it like a bone and try to make it ok for ourselves inside our heads before we have to deal with it in real life. We speculate, anticipate, contemplate, and fret. We try to figure the easiest way through, or whether there’s another way around. We drag our feet and are pulled forward anyway.
     And yet, for all of our distaste, there are moments of beauty and blessing no matter what we have to go through. And whatever pain and suffering there may be, we can rest assured that grace awaits us on the flipside.

Suffering often comes bearing spiritual gifts.
