Grow Through It

The mixture of the calm with the storm is not haphazard. Quite the contrary. My growth is at the center of each. I will trust its message. ~ Casey, Karen. Each Day a New Beginning: Daily Meditations for Women. Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.

But the nothing times, the boring times,
those minutes in the interstices of life!
The middle-of-the-road times…
Can’t those be the growth times?
So many more of those times…
can’t I grow then? No, she’s right.
It’s the highs and lows that make us
different people. At least they come
in equal numbers. There are delicacies
among the dregs. I’ll watch for God
to use them both!
