Misunderstanding what someone may mean when they say they’re thankful.

Someone asked me how does this person I know who deals with many different ailments and asked does she handle all of this.

Truthfully, I really don’t know.
However when I do know that when  someone say they find something to be thankful for it doesn’t mean they aren’t suffering because they are.

It means they seek something or can find something to be thankful for despite their suffering. Being thankful doesn’t lessen their suffering as many believe it does.

It can mean they maybe thankful for the simple things in life that others overlooked. They may see something like a lovely flower and be thankful it exist to be able to appreciate it’s beauty.

It may be a pleasant day outside and they may be thankful for it.
One thing she has and that is a very strong belief in God and I think that carries her through a lot.

 

Original Post About Being Thankful

 

It’s All Well With My Soul

 

1. When peace, like a river,
attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul”

Chorus: It is well (it is well)
with my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

2. Though Satan should buffet,
though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control,
That Christ has regarded
my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.(Repeat chorus)

3. My sin, oh the bliss
of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross,
and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!(Repeat chorus)

4. And Lord haste the day
when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound,
and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.(Repeat chorus)

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
