I only say that when good things happen to me. I really need to reverse my thinking.

Amen, if even the word describes it :)

"Are there any among the vain gods of the nations that can bring rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are you not he, O LORD our God? We set our hope on you, for you do all these things."

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

That's way more than "subtle".  To me it looks far more indecipherable than Hebrew did before I learned it.

And yes, Our God is indeed Great!
