'Worth more than many sparrows...'

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Ever have some trying times?

Trick question - of course you have. I remember the days shortly after my stroke in 1998 - struggling with speech, seeking unsuccessfully finding the right words, fighting to read. Trying times indeed.

On my better days during that time, I found these and similar words comforting and helped keep my recovery going. A mantra to remember when times get rough: You will not be forgotten.
