Through thick and thin

We often hear the saying, 'Through thick and thin', but do we know where the phrase originates from? Apparently it comes from a time when people in England walked everywhere and their journey would take them through woodlands that were 'thick' with trees and also with a small amount of trees (thin). 

I think this a marvellous image of how God journey's with us. God will be with us when we go through the 'thick' forests and the journey is difficult, but he is also with us when the road is easy. God is with us through 'Thick and thin!'

“Through perils both of wind and limb, Through thick and thin she followed him.” - Samuel Butler

God will be with you today...
Through Thick,
And Thin. 

Living in Grace
