Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.
Rumi ~ Persian mystical poet
Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it.
Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy, for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow. So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete.
James 1:2-4 TLB
