when you have nothing

it is the poorest of the poor that say God bless you with their signs on the street and their words

it is when you have nothing

((less is more))

that is when you thank God
in prison, with nothing
Saint Paul
found joy

found joy in God

for he had nothing
but God

and in this he found joy

"I am talking like a madman--with far greater labors, far more imprisonments, with countless beatings, and often near death. Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the sity, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers, in toil and hardship, 
through many a sleepless night, 
in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure." 
Saint Paul
