“Thank God for success in our callings and affairs, comfort in relations, and comfortable places of abode…
It is God who equips us with strength and makes our way blameless, who has blessed the work of our hands; and it may be that though our beginning was small, yet our latter days will be very great.
Our houses have been safe from fear, and there has been no rod of God upon us; so that glad songs of salvation have been in our tents from day to day.
With our staff it may be we have crossed this Jordan, and now we have become two camps; and it is God who settles the solitary in homes.
If we have enjoyed life with our relations, and they have been to us as a lovely deer, a graceful doe, we must give you thanks for it; for every creature is that to us, and no more, that you make it to be.” (Matthew Henry)
