Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones,
And give thanks to His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
Isn't it a beautiful truth to know that our trouble and weeping is just for momentary?
No matter how dark the night is, there's always a morning that follows.
Dh and I had a breakfast at the hotel by this river yesterday morning. That's when this photo was taken. We were to attend an important meeting. It's a gathering of established foundations serving in our host country. Yesterday, we officially became a member of the league of foundations. Dh was called in front of a big audience to receive the certificate. We were full of joy. Though we wept for many dark nights to see this charity foundation coming through, it finally came to pass. And we can only say, God is faithful. God is good!
Here are some of the thoughts I scribbled in my notebook while, at the same time, trying to decipher everything said in the local language:
- Philanthropy is a privilege not only for the rich and influential people nor servanthood only for the lower in rank.
- Our Foundation is an avenue where people from all levels of society, rich, poor and those in the middle, meet to build a happy community.
My joy is to see more people find their JOY when morning comes.
This is my entry for Scripture & a Snapshot this week.
