On Sunday after dinner, I made some s’mores. One kiddo was struggling with the messy nature of the treat—so much that it was a huge distraction from the goodness itself. Finally, Joe said, “Just accept the fact that it’s going to be messy and you’ll enjoy it more.” Doesn’t that just apply to EVERYTHING? Relationships? Work? The Church? Growing as a human?
If you’re avoiding everything that’s messy, you’ll miss out on so much sweetness.
