Today

Standard

“God does not cause our misfortunes.  Some are caused by bad luck, some are caused by bad people, and some are simply an inevitable consequence of our being human and being mortal, living in a world of inflexible natural laws.  The painful things that happen to us are not punishments for our misbehavior, nor are they in any way part of some grand design on God’s part.  Because the tragedy is not God’s will, we need not feel hurt or betrayed by God when tragedy strikes.  We can turn to Him for help in overcoming it, precisely because we can tell ourselves that God is as outraged by it as we are.” 

–Harold S. Kushner

Today…. I woke up in pain….  I laid back down and woke up again….still in pain.  I finally got up and started to do something from the much larger things I planned to do today. 

Tomorrow will be better.
