Part of Every Misery

“Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery’s shadow or reflection: the fact that you don’t merely suffer, but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.” -C.S.Lewis

Today was difficult. Twice I walked into a room with a temper, and ended up calling one person when I was settled back inside my personal prison, and apologized for it. I’m lucky he knows me well enough to know that I simply disliked the unprofessionalism which was outside of our collective control. Praying for better days ahead, especially ones when I don’t feel like punching someone in the face.   

We Can Ignore…

“We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world…. No doubt pain as God’s megaphone is a terrible instrument; it may lead to final and unrepented rebellion. But it gives the only opportunity the bad man can have for amendment. it removes the veil; it plants the flag of truth within the fortress of the rebel soul.”  ―C.S. Lewis

I was going to write something today, or, at the very least, finish something I’d already started. Unfortunately, pain is screaming through my body and I cannot sit, so it will have to happen another day. 

Have a good weekend everyone!
