"O Lord, my God,
I will keep on thanking you forever."
This is so easy in our joy, but so hard in our sorrow. How can we recognize His gift in a death, a famine, a hardship, a debilitating injury, an abuse perpetrated on us? How difficult to make out the footprints by your side or the enduring strength holding you up or the extra tears streaming with yours. How difficult to be thankful in pain.
