How do you keep your faith in the face of hardship? No one wants to go through trials and ordeals.Yet ffter passing through darkness we often experience a spiritual illumination. What James Christensen is telling in Sometimes the Spirit Touches Us through Our Weaknesses is ADVERSITY HAS ITS PURPOSE.
The hunch-backed figure sits on a podium on a checker board floor the checkerboard is the dark and light playing field of life. The hunch is not a deformity but a physical symbol of the burdens all humans bear. In life we experience hardships.
The spirit hovers above the hump the electric spark of inspiration flowing from her to him, flowing in through his burdens. The Latin on his green podium reads POST NUBILA PHOEBUS - After Clouds – SUN. Our ordeals are temporary. What is important is that we do the best with what we are given
And Remember - Every cloud has a silver lining
