quote borrowed from Beth

You know how people sometimes have a favorite quote at the end of their emails? My friend Beth sent out an email recently, with this powerful tidbit attached. It's beautifully, painfully true and it forces me to take a closer look at my whining heart.

To be grateful for an unanswered prayer, to give thanks in a state of interior desolation, to trust in the love of God in the face of the marvels, the cruel circumstances, obscenities, and the common place of life is to whisper a doxology in the dark.
