A Sunday Thought

During times of struggle, it is easy to take a very insular view of the challenges that we face. We often forget that there is a connection between those difficulties and the times when life seemingly flows along effortlessly. This morning, I happened upon this quote and realized that it serves as a reminder of the value of our struggles:

“I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it.” ~ Kristin Armstrong
