There is no such thing as a problem
without a gift for you in its hands.
You seek problems because
you need their gifts.

----------Richard Bach - Illusions
(I think I need to head for my bookshelf and pickup this book.
It's time to re-read.)

Interesting thought.

That is a deep thought that I have never thought about before. Problems and gifts together.

This is my all time favorite book. I've read it so many times..that I bought a second copy (the first one was literally falling apart). I think I should pull mine out as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hmmmm, I will have to ponder on this more.

I agree!~ If you look at problems in the correct manner, they are given in order to teach us something we need to know! Learning is always a gift!

Lee said...

I think I understand... we learn from our problems, and that is the gift?

Dang I LOVE that book. I think I need to read it again too. I wonder where my copy is?

That's a tough one to recognize in the moment, though!

Hmm. I think I agree with this. Really, trials are life's pop-quizzes. And sometimes a pop-quiz is a great way to learn.

Never looked at it this way. Great thought to start the week with

I had to read this TWICE before I "got" it. Lots of truth in the thought. You're mighty deep today, So.
