We should always thank God for everything that comes. Our lives should be one of thanksgiving. Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below. I once saw a man draw some black dots. I could make nothing of them. Then he drew a few lines, put in a few rests, then a clef at the beginning, and I saw that these black dots were musical notes. There are many black dots in our lives, and we fail to understand WHY they are there. If we let God into our lives, and adjust the dots in the proper way, and draw the lines He wants, and separate this from that, and put the rests at the proper places; out of the black dots, in our lives, He will make a GLORIOUS HARMONY.
“Would we know that the major chords were sweet
If there were no minor key ?
Would the painter’s work be fair to our eyes
Without shade on land or sea ?
Would we know the meaning of happiness
Would we feel that the day was bright
If we’d never known what it was to grieve
Nor gazed on the dark of night ?
When the musician presses the black keys on the great organ, the music is as sweet as when he touches the white ones, but to get the capacity of the instrument HE MUST TOUCH THEM ALL. So,
Count your blessings, name them one by one
And it will be surprise you what God has done”.
