6. “Praise be to you, O LORD,
God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.

Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.

Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name.”
David, King of Israel: 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

I can choose to speak about goodness and beauty, even when my inner eye still looks for someone to accuse or something to call ugly.” Henri Nouwen

12. “If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon
