People Are Like Stained Glass Windows

I like the following quote so much I included it on my website's home page.

“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Isn’t that so true?

A person's true character is displayed when life gets a little tough. How do they respond in the midst of adversity? Do they handle it with anger, blame, and bitterness? Or do they face the tough situation with a positive attitude, determined to emerge from the dark tunnel into the light?

My friend, Kjersten, has been an example of a person who truly shines from within. Kjersten has been suffering from Lyme disease for several years. Some of the effects are severe flu like symptoms, muscle weakness, brain fog, her eyesight is being affected, and there is constant pain throughout her body.

Though she daily battles this disease, Kjersten continues to have an unwavering faith and a delightful sense of humor.

I hope I would have such courage.

Striving to be a like a stained glass window that shines from within,
