One of my friends has this as her e-mail signature, and it unfailingly cheers my soul:
I know that my Redeemer lives,and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.
And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God;
I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
What a fantastic, stirring promise to hold out upon commencing another day.
