"Merci" is the French word for "Thank You."

On Air France on the way to a connecting flight in Paris, the
French-speaking crew kept using the word "Merci."

In the Paris airport the word kept popping up again. I became
sensitive to it. "Merci" sounds virtually identical to the
English word "Mercy" just a slight difference in enunciation.

Perhaps their tonal similarity is spiritually connected.

When we are thankful, mercy follows.

When things go bad in our world, I often find that the
thankfulness is also gone. We focus far more on the things that
go wrong than on the things going right.

We wonder why has God abandoned us?
Why are we forsaken?
Why have things gone so sour?
Why is everyone else doing OK but us?

When that happens, we've usually forgotten about all of the
things that have gone right.

Merci is a word we no longer speak; therefore, mercy is a thing
we no longer see.

It is one of the MANY little things that enter into your world
each day that's on the good side.
