  1. Since I haven't yet learned to embrace my suffering, I find this article fascinating.

    I am thinking about gettin the Peter Kreeft book about making sense of suffering, i'm sure I need to look at my daily pain and breathing difficulties, in a new way.

    Thanks for this prompt in the right direction, Jean.

  2. I haven't yet read that, but I have heard it is good. One of my favorited is Amazing Grace for those who Suffer by Jeff Cavins and Matt Pinto.
