In Everything Give Thanks

“These are the times that try men’s souls.”  ~ Thomas Paine

George Washington praying


“The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.”  ~  George Washington,
The Writings of George Washington, John C. Fitzpatrick, editor (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1932), Vol. 5, p. 245, July 9, 1776


“Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

 The Lord God[a] is my strength;
He will make my feet like deer’s feet,
And He will make me walk on my high hills.”
~ Habakkuk 3:17-19
