"Behold, I am toward God as you are;
I too was pinched off from a piece of clay."
How is that for a verse to memorize to keep things in perspective?
Even the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise.
