Nothing lasts forever. Knowing this helps us get through difficult times because we know that the difficulties we are experiencing are not permanent. But what about the joyful, fulfilling and meaningful things in our lives? Knowing that these too, will not last forever makes us aware of how precious they are. Writer Patricia Campbell Carlson puts words to this dynamic, “Grief and gratitude are kindred souls, each pointing to the beauty of what is transient and given to us by grace.”
May we be given the grace we need to weather the difficult times and be filled with gratitude for all of the beauty and meaning that fills our lives.
Have a great week everyone!
