Peck and shed

The goal,it seems to me,in this human experienceis to simply grow closer to God—to grow in grace,to see God, good, more clearly in everyone,to see His hand in everything.Easy for some?A bit of work for most of us,butthe nice part about this opportunity,if I may say so,is that it makes all the difference:A chick does have to peck at that egg shell;the butterfly does need to shed what needs shedding;so we need not resist or resentour need to peck and shed.
