The blessing of glad times--oh, yes! The blessing of sorrow?--harder to grasp but true nonetheless.

 

 

There's the blessing of daylight,
with beauty to see;
the blessing of re-birth
into God's family;
the blessing of glad times
and days full of joy,
the blessing of labor,
with strength to employ.

The blessing of night hours,
a time for sleep;
the blessing of sorrow,
a time to weep;
the solace of heaven
waiting for me,
the blessing of living
eternally free!

As I count up my blessings
I think once again
how God pours His blessings
on women and men,
and though we can't fathom
the blessings of loss,
He gave life's purest blessing
in His love on the cross.

 

In face of all this, what is there left to say?
If God is for us, who can be against us?

He that did not hesitate to spare his own Son
but
gave him up for us all—

can we not trust such a God to give us,
with him,
everything else that we can need?

(Romans 8:32, Phillips Translation)

What makes Tolkien's heroes so great and his villains so terrible? How do we rise to hero status or fall into corruption?..
