Sisters in the Same House

"The most helpful discovery of today has been
that right in the midst of sorrows
there is always room for joy.

Joy and sorrow are sisters;
they live in the same house."

~ Macrina Wiederkehr,
in The Cup of Our Life, by Joyce Rupp

Reminds me of the Rich Mullins song, The Love of God:

Joy and Sorrow are this ocean
And in their every ebb and flow
Now the Lord a door has opened
That all hell could never close.
Here I'm tested and made worthy
Tossed about but lifted up
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God.

Your post reminded me of this quote:

"When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." ~Gibran

You have been such an inspiration to me--I check your blog every day for new posts. My prayers are with you.
