Sometimes, we are called to enter into the potter’s oven and we know not why. (metaphorical, of course!)
Yet, are we here only to experience joy? Although it sure feels better, and we may wish this were the case, we are actually here to experience all of it; the whole spectrum of human emotion, even the difficult ones.
If you are experiencing sorrow at this time, experience it fully. For when joy comes around again, you will appreciate it that much more.
