Light in the Darkness

"The Apostle Paul in Prison"

I have had huge respect for Joan Chittister for many years now. Here's something I just found that is very applicable to my experience these days and to that of several of my friends:

Never fear periods of darkness in life. They are the atrium to new phases of life, the threshold to new experience, the invitation to move on from where you are to where there is more for you to learn.

— Joan Chittister in Light in the Darkness

I'm going to make an effort to remind myself of that word "invitation" on a regular basis.
