We know joy in the morning only after we have seen the darkness of night.
We know peace in our souls only after we have felt anxiety in our minds.
We know grace in our lives only after we have transgressed in our days.
We know love in our hearts only after we have opened ourselves to pain.
We know ourselves in this world only after we are willing to lose everything.
We know God in our lives finally when we allow ourselves to know His joy, peace, grace and love.
