Painful as it may be,
a significant emotional event can be the catalyst for choosing a direction
that serves us and those around us more effectively.
Look for the learning.

Sometimes, learning comes easy.
It comes from the obvious,
At other times, it seems to happen out of the blue.
It is unexpected,
The delivery matters not,
it is what is taken away from the experience which matters most.
Remembering such, is just as important as the lesson to be learned…
Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God;
whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
2 John 9:11
