"It is not that Christians are to 'give thanks' with a plastic smile, saying things are wonderful when they are hard. It is knowing that the hard things are really hard things, a result of the abnormality since the Fall, yet not revolting against God when the hard things come. It is in this sense we are to say, 'thank you.' I know that even out of this part of the battle and tears, my Heavenly Father will bring good--even though I may not know how all the pieces fit together."
~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality
