Pleasure vs. Sorrow

Thought this was something that might help you in trying to teach your children about the value of sorrow in our lives. Read it tonight and was really struck by its message.

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When sorrow walked with me.

-Robert Browning Hamilton

Might be something to memorize and discuss in difficult times--in addition to God's Word as our foundational source of course.
