Give Thanks for All Fortune

“We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is ‘good,’ because it is good, if ‘bad’ because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country.”

–C.S. Lewis in a Letter to Don Giovanni Calabria, August 10, 1948

  1. Amazing the powerful thoughts in that ONE sentence! Would that my letters or emails could be so full of powerful truth.
    Thank you for finding this and sharing.
    Love seeing the snow falling across your screen, too–the first time this season–and especially love having you home!
