Pain Prescriptions

Pain Prescriptions

“When pain is to be borne, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God more than all.”

~ C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

    great quote – did not know this one. Hope it is not particularly apt for you

    • Thanks, Laura. I think we all live a mixture of joy and pain. This happened to be on my mind today. Thanks for checking in. Thoughtful of you.

  2. Great quote and photo.

    • Thank you. It’s a gentle reminder to be giver’s and receiver’s of this type “pain prescription”.

  3. Beautiful post! For some reason, I don’t get the notice of you new post from the reader (?)

    • Not sure why they weren’t there. I think I remember seeing Defining Moments. Not sure about Pain Prescriptions. I am careful to not have too many tags with the initial post. I add more later. WordPress can’t publish it if it has too many tags and categories. Found that our the hard way. Thanks for letting me know.

  4. What a beautiful picture, and a great quote. I’m so thankful for the love of God 🙂
