" Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are 'patches of godlight' in the woods of our experience."

Give Thanks

When the sun shines bright and the skies are clear,
When God is blessing, 
Give thanks.

When the table is full and also your stomach,
When there is a roof over your head,
When you and your family are healthy,
When your job is stress free,
Give thanks.

When God performs a miracle,
When your friends are close and your enemies far,
When life is good,
Give thanks.

But when skies are dark and the storms come, 
When the table is empty with no money to fill it,
When you lose your job,
When a loved one is taken from this world,
When sickness and tragedy come,
Give thanks.

When God says no,
When friends betray you and family abandons you,
When terror follows you and sleep will not come,
When Heaven is silent,
Give thanks.

"O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever."
1 Chronicles 16:34
