Frederick Buechner – “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.

When beautiful things happen to you, rejoice and bank those memories.


But don’t go round breaking the hearts of those going through terrible situations with words that break bones.


Remember, here is the world of day and night;


The beauty of today can’t stop tomorrow’s terrible thing that’s destined to happen.

So when beautiful things happen to you, rejoice. But when terrible things happen to you, don’t be afraid.
