PEACE, WE OFTEN HEARD IT SAID, is not the absence of war. It’s the presence of something. Nor is love the absence of hatred.

A man come home from a very tough day at office, and he said to his wife, “I’ve had a bad day. Please, if you ‘ve any bad news tonight, keep it to yourself!” To which she replied, “O.K. No bad news. Now for the good news. Remember our four children? Well, three of them didn’t break an arm today!”

Faith/Trust

In our own lives, any compassion we have, any empathy we have often comes from our own brokenness. There is no other way to get it.  And any worthwhile growing in our lives has always been in times of conflict. We can take a lesson from nature in this area.

We all may have seen cocoons hanging from trees and bushes in the springtime. The cocoon is protection for our wormy creature, in the process of maturing into a butterfly. The grace of the butterfly is really beautiful to behold, but full maturity does not come without a struggle. Biologists have discovered that the struggle to break through the cocoon of old life into new life is absolutely necessary for the butterfly’s survival. Without the struggle, the tiny wing muscles would not develop the strength to fly and the butterfly would die in the cocoon.
