“There are gifts you get from God in the midst of grief that you would never have had the bandwidth to receive if everything was going as planned.” Levi Lusko
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
Loss opens us to comforting which, in our days of joy, we could not recognize–certainly not desire. Mourning expands our hearts.
Many of those gifts we need, but would not willingly receive.
