Creativity From Suffering

Good Morning! I invite you to consider these WordsWorth Remembering, from Ursula LeGuin:

"The creative adult is the child who has survived."

My prayer, O Living God, is this:

Today, as we become aware of suffering, we ask for an end to suffering. We appreciate the opportunity to work in partnership with you to reduce and end suffering. We ask that you would help pain to disappear once it has done its warning work to identify destructive activity.
In regard to suffering that we have already experienced, may the roots of that suffering become the lifespring of our creativity so that we may not simply survive, but thrive. Let us partner with you to take breakdowns and turn them into breakthroughs.

May you find a blessing in this day for you.
