Imperfect World, Happy Balance

I copied this (with permission, of course) from ‘Sorry, no heaven’, one of the blogs I am following.

I feel blessed
and in a state of perpetual grace
not because only good things happen 
but because all things happen, 
and we are breathing.
Sad things happen, 
and there are accidents 
and evil people 
and suffering. 
These are our teachers
and these are the realities of the world
that have to be embraced for good or bad,
for better or worse, 
in sickness and in health 
the sacred marriage vows 
between man and his imperfect universe.
