How can I be grateful in bad times and in good times?
Thank you Rose for the article!
“I imagine spirituality and social change as two nearly indistinguishable peaks of a ridge that with perspective can be seen as one summit to freedom. “. Wonderful article and excellent quote. For Christians, “love God” and “love your neighbor as yourself” are actions. We forget sometimes that love is supposed to be actionable at times not just a state of being. When we love, we can all be truly free.
“When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings.“
I cry very little. Mostly at funerals. Occasionally when really stressed out. I used to see it as weakness, but the older I get I see it as strength. Tears are a blessing for sure.
I love this quote – “It had survived my lack of sensitivity and left me with a powerful lesson about the importance of responding instead of reacting.” If only as human beings, we could remember it more. We could avoid so many more problems in the world! Even so, I think your reaction/response was normal and all worked out.
