Shadows and Sunshine

Listen to this:


And think on this:
“I can say with complete truthfulness that everything I have learned in my seventy-years in this world, everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my existence, has been through affliction and not through happiness, whether pursued or attained. In other words, if it ever were to be possible to eliminate affliction from our earthly existence by means of some drug or other medical mumbo jumbo, as Aldous Huxley envisaged in Brave New World, the result would not be to make life delectable, but to make it too banal and trivial to be endurable. This, of course, is what the Cross signifies. And it is the Cross, more than anything else, that has called me inexorably to Christ.” --Malcolm Muggeridge

Never forget...the Shadows prove the Sunshine.

I'm living proof.

And so is she

Just as we cannot really know the meaning of joy without the existence of sorrow, we cannot know sunshine apart from the presence of shadows. God is so patient and good to teach us these things. Thank you for reminding us, Ben.
