Commonplaces of Life

To be grateful

for an unanswered prayer,

to give thanks

in a state of interior desolation,

to trust in the love of God

in the face of


cruel circumstances,


and the commonplaces of life

is to whisper

 a doxology in darkness.

Brennan Manning

Lord, give me the grace to give thanks in all things and to have a grateful heart!
