More Beautiful For The Shadows

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

    The picture reminds me of the parable of the sower. The seeds are sown in different ground not just the fertile soil. Why would we sow onto stony ground?
    To give the opportunity for others to nourish us on that part of our journey. It is up to all of us to walk with others at those times and support them. The stony ground is a picture of wonderful opportunities which can be taken if we are prepared to support others.

  2. Great quote! And such a perfect pairing with that gorgeous photo!
