"Whoever is true to life,
however hard and barren it may be,
will discover in himself
fountains of very real refreshment.
The world will give him more than he ever imagined possible.
The silver threads of God's mystery
will begin to sparkle visibly in everything round him
and there will be a song in his heart.
His burdens will turn to blessings
because he recognizes them as coming from God
and welcomes them as such. …
"Let us trust in life because this night will pass and a new day will dawn.
Let us trust in life because we do not have to live through it alone.
God is with us." ((p. 69)
