My life there and afterwards

A quote from a book I like, “The Shack” by Wm. Paul Young.

“Most birds were created to fly. Being grounded for them is a limitation within their ability to fly, not the other way around…You, on the other hand, were created to be loved. So for you to live as if you were unloved is a limitation, not the other way around…Living unloved is like clipping a bird’s wings and removing its ability to fly. Not something I want for you…Pain has a way of clipping our wings and keeping us from being able to fly…And if it’s left unresolved for very long, you can almost forget that you were ever created to fly in the first place.”

Know that you are loved.
