Tears of Gratitude

The Mystery within
Tears surprised me today as I commented to a friend how grateful I was (excuse the honesty) for the “crap” in my life.  It may not have been the best word choice but some of my greatest difficulties and grief turned into pure gold through acceptance,  reflection and prayer.  It was my troubles that sometimes got me in touch with what Howard Thurman refers to as “the genuine in yourself.” And it did set me free.

My April 21, 2016 post, Goodness Within, attempted to highlight my experiences with this holy paradox.

What if in times of difficulty we turned to acceptance, reflection and prayer and felt the genuine Goodness within—more often?
