Miserable joy and glorious pain
If I can add anything of value to anyone's story, allow me to add this; it is so totally worth it. We can, if we make ourselves available, enter in to the sort of stories rarely found outside the pages of the Book of books. We can be answers to others prayers, we can see our own answered through the lives of those we connect with. We can have a living, breathing, relationship with the one who created us all in his image. If we wish, we can spend time with him in the garden and, like it or not, we will spend times hiding, questioning, wondering, and quite probably hurting when the darkness comes. In the quiet times, take the opportunity to climb up on your own "rock" and take it all in, feel his embrace and the whisper of reassurance that it is so totally worth it.
