“Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavour, enjoyment and suffering.”
I’m just a human being who’s trying to live a full life everyday of my life and if suffering is part of that full life, then I shall accept it with a little more open arms. I guess life is a package with both joys and grief. So it shouldn’t be a surprise when suffering knocks on a believer’s door. Open it and let it come in. Maybe it’s a visitor sent from above with a message or a gift.
By the way, I once had a dream to play the guitar really really well. I still have that dream and I continue to play the guitar. Now a bigger one of course.
