From the Shelf: Bittersweet

“When you hear music that pierces your spirit, thank God for the gift of music. When you witness generosity that reminds you of the deep goodness of humanity, thank God for the way he created us. When you feel a profound sense of beauty, thank God for it. When the traditions and smells and sounds of Christmas that you love and wait for all year long overwhelm you and you think, I love this world that we live in, thank God for those things. When the faces of your children or your parents shock you with the love you feel for them, thank God.”
