Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.

-Thomas Merton

Grateful today that I’ve been given beauty for my ashes. I’m grateful because present hardships are so small in light of the great things God has done and will continue to do in my life.  I’m grateful because I can find peace and deep wells of joy even when I’m frustrated.

[blessed is the one] whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

-Psalm 1
