I learned this the happy way. You might think I intended to say "I learned this the hard way" but I am not getting corrected. I meant what I just said. I really learned what I am about to say in a happy way. It came as a pleasant surprise. Everything is either a gift or some kind of confusing ladder going up. It's still going up. If you find pleasure in loving God, He also finds pleasure in not just giving you the things you need but also the mediocre things you wanted.
