Shir Lamaalot.. a song of ascents

Being thankful is hard sometimes if you are in danger, in pain, in a bad situation or even just when things are going very well and we get complacent and distracted.     We tend to forget where our help and support really come from.   While people are sent to help us, it is not really they who are doing it.  They are stirred up to help and ultimately it is G-d who sends the help.   It can come in small ways.    A word, a sight, a song.  The point is it does come if we are faithful. 

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 
 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore                     ....Psalm 121
