Pain Prescriptions

“When pain is to be borne, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God more than all.”

~ C.S. Lewis The Problem of Pain

Home Sweet Home

“There’s only one address anyone lives at and it’s always a duplex called Joy and Pain.
They co-habit every season of life. Accept them both and keep company with the joy
while the pain does it’s necessary renovations.”

~ Ann VosKamp

Dusk … is just an illusion, because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are; there cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel … to be always together, yet forever apart? ~ Nicholas Sparks

Isn’t this so true about life? Burly storm billows amid glimmers of sunray. Keep company with both. Learn the lesson of the storm and savor the comfort of joy.

Then all becomes joy.

Peace,
Alexandria
