It is a quick read and a delightful story. It has a powerful message: to glorify God in all that we do and to give thanks for everything in our lives.
At one point a reference is made to George Matheson. I did not recognize the name until I did some research.
The Quilt cited Matheson's "Thanks for the Thorn" to illustrate our need to praise and thank God.
I have never thanked thee for my thorn.
I have thanked thee a thousand times for my roses,
But never once for my thorn.
Teach me the glory of my cross,
Teach me the value of my thorn.
Show me that I have climbed to thee by the path of my pain.
Show me that my tears have made my rainbows.
~ George Matheson ~
Today, I pray that you see the rainbows in your tears.
