For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
--2 Corinthians 4:17
My Lord, if I may be walking through fields that are rough with grief and care, may I have the courage to continue on to the smooth pastures, where I may walk with comfort and peace. May I not let the weariness and sorrow that may come to my heart today dwarf my hope and enjoyment of the future. Amen.
