Blessings or Curse?

gracelinesheader “When the Lord knows that good healthsickness2 is necessary for our welfare, He sends it to us; and when we need sickness, He sends that too.”

                               -St. Teresa of Avila

For Reflection:

Can I think of a time in my own life (or in the life of another) when sickness was a blessing? What spiritual benefits did it bring? How does this continue to bring meaning to Romans 8:28 for me?
