"Earth's tribulations diminish in proportion to the elevation of our souls." 
~ James Lendall Basford ~

We can get balled up in knots without even knowing it, until something comes along to rattle us into awareness. And then, suddenly, we realize we have become accustomed to our own dysfunction. We realize it has taken us over and taken us along for a ride.
     Thank God for the things that rattle us! Though they may arrive with a fair amount of discomfort, they break up the tangle and freshen the air. They invigorate us, and they shine the light brightly on our forward path.

As I go through life challenges, I remember that sometimes the most difficult experiences bring the greatest relief.
