If you've read this blog or if you know super-wife and me, then you know that we had a challenging winter and spring. It was something that Gladys and I faced together along with a lot of friends who were praying for us as doctors were repairing my right eye.
The tone for all this and the true north for where our attitudes needed to be was contained in this song by Matt Redman. It's 10,000 Reasons and it says it all.
Despite the day, we were able to check off more and more of the 10,000 reasons to praise God.
My first exposure to the song was through a friend from Indonesia who had experienced a lot of the bumps and grinds of life. Her English is challenged, but she knows this song. She had her son write out the words on a sheet of paper which she keeps in her case for her glasses. She reads it everyday.
I'm not sure what the future holds but this song states it well. There are always more reasons to praise God.
