But if he does that each day,
he can sleep at night
and do it again the next day.

and it has changed for the better; so I trust it will again.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ~
Pain is part of being alive,
and we need to learn that.
Pain does not last forever,
nor is it necessarily unbearable,
and we need to be taught that.
