“Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us; Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, Let us march on till victory is won.”
Take a minute this morning to lift your heart to God, not in gratitude for family or friends or warm homes or good food. Lift your heart in thanks for all that your life has made you, for the faith, the hope and the love you are able to carry inside you because of the good and the hard times you have faced. Trace your fingers across the scars and think of the ways you have been transformed and strengthened by a life that is often unsteady and unsettling. Give thanks for resilience.
