“Darkness deserves gratitude. It is the alleluia point at which we learn to understand that all growth does not take place in the sunlight.” ~Joan D. Chittister
So much of the growth that has happened in my life has happened in the dark times and in the underground territory of my life.
I may not always enjoy those dark times, but I’ve learned to appreciate their benefits.
In so doing, the value I bring to those times helps me gain even greater growth because I’m actively looking for it.
What growth has happened in the darkness in your life?
