I don't want all my problems taken away. I need them to remember that there is Rest. I need them to remind me that Peace and Healing are not events. And I need them to help transform my understanding of what problems are. I have the Solution and so everything else is pigeon poo. There is this Yiddish wives tale that it is good luck to be pooped on by a bird. My pain and my difficulties are gifts to me where I can lean into Strength that is not mine and learn to rely on Him. I teach myself to focus on Joy when all around me is chaos. I can bring Light to a dark world. Amen.
