Thanks

Gentle Reader,

I had intended to write a short post each day on this journey of pursuing peace and life, but I got sick. Again. The sort of sick where you cough so much that you actually begin to see muscle definition in your abs. And you wonder if it’s weird to be just a little bit happy about that.

All I have to say today is this:

If you enjoy overall good health, thank God for it. Take every opportunity He has given you.

and

If you do not enjoy overall good health, thank God that He is there with you, stroking your hair and collecting every one of your tears.

Whatever our circumstances, let’s find something to be thankful about. Let’s strive to drag our eyes from the bleakness and turn them to the Beauty.

My journey to faith. (15)

  1. Rabbi Yossi Friedman wrote a wonderful story about a gentle Holocaust survivor named Joseph Friedenson, affectionately known to Rabbi Friedman as “Zeidy” (grandfather). The story is called God Has Not Forsaken You. I think it speaks to the same point you are making today. Even in your darkest hour, you can be thankful to God, for He has not abandoned you.
