Perfect illustration of "The Lord gives and the Lord takes away." I loved your repeated phrase "Blessed be the name of the Lord." Your use of contrasts in the different stanzas is very effective. ("nothing", "something", "all that the world calls good," "all that the world calls bad." Nice work!

Your entry poignantly reminds me of the Beatitudes (Jesus Sermon on the Mount), and also of some of David's Psalms. Beautifully written with great depth. Every person can find themselves included in at least one or more of these many Blessings. Bless you for sharing this Lovely devotional with your co-writers and friends.
