More than when grain and wine and oil increase.
Is this now, or is this in the future? Is this the result of my prayer? I don’t know much about grain and wine and oil increasing or what that might mean or why it should make me happy. But I do feel, in the best of times, that you have put gladness in my heart. When I serve at your Altar, when I sing, when I talk about you with friends, and when I see your work being done. Then I feel the gladness in my heart, more than when I get free dinners, or Wake Forest wins a football game, or when a pretty girl smiles back at me. Those things I understand.
