We always want to start with the good. We rarely want to share the ugly, the imperfect and the unsavory. But life does not know about perfection, only heaven does. The only way to get to that perfection, transformed into an eternal being, is salvation: the road to perfection, but it knows both the extremes and the mundane. I guess the only way to live through each is to live through each in Christ: To walk side by side, to follow when He leads and where He leads. Easier said than done. But once it’s done, then the testing of our faith produces something beautiful; something nobody can take away from you.
