Multitude Monday, Take 296

"The best remembering ends in praise. Remembering that you were lost, then found, is cause for rejoicing. Remembering that you were wounded, then healed, calls for songs of loudest praise. Remembering that you hungered and thirsted once upon a time makes even a crust of bread and a cup of water a banquet."
--Leigh McLeroy, The Beautiful Ache (175)
