Psalm 129 -- Yes!

"For all that has been -- thanks!
To all that shall be -- Yes! -Dag Hammarskjold

Can I thank you in truth, for the difficulties of my life?
For being ploughed by illness,
neglected like the seeds the grow in gutters and then wither in the sun?
Can I in all honesty thank you
for enemies, oppressions, and rotten luck?
And what of your long absences
and continuing illusiveness? What of that?
"For all that has been – thanks"?
