Friends. "To praise and thank God, no matter what happens."
I placed this in my Prayer Journal in November of 1995.
It was written by Murray Bodo, OFM, in St. Anthony Messenger Press.
I thought you would enjoy it.
Blessings, love, and hugs from a safe distance,
"Give thanks to the Lord always and your life will be a song. Some songs are sad, of course, but the melody is still there your voice, as well as the movement, and the feeling of freedom that comes from music. To praise and thank God, no matter what happens, is a gift that few possess.
To lift your voice and heart on high in failure, and defeat, places you among the saints of God. For only faith and love can explain a sing of praise and thanksgiving when times are bad."
"O Lord, my God, I cried out to you, and you restored me to Health"
