“I had recently received bad news. Deep shadows of darkness seemed to cover my soul. I prayed but the darkness remained. Suddenly, one day, as I entered a friend’s home, I noticed these words: ‘Try giving thanks.’ I did, and in a moment every shadow was gone.”*
It is good to give thanks to the Lord (Psalm 92:1).
