Tammy's husband is a traveling salesman.  He's gone most of the week.  Nevertheless, his family lives down the street.  His two sisters drop in every day after school to see the nieces they adore.
  Cynthia is in a dead end job.  In spite of persistent efforts, she is unable to find one in her field.  Nevertheless, her daughter was just chosen for homecoming queen and her son is enjoying a full ride to a prestigious college where he plays football.
  Mandy and her family have had to relocate to the city, due to her husband's job.  She misses the fields, wide open spaces, and her free roaming chickens from their rural home.  Nevertheless, her children are adjusting well to their new schools and they have found a wonderful church nearby.
  Welcome to the neverthess principle.  It's not my idea, but I'm just passing it along to you.  Life isn't idyllic for any of us.  It seems about the time one area of life is looking good, another goes awry, but the nevertheless principle helps to refocus our attention.
When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?  Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly, And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold, Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold; Count your many blessings wealth can never buy Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict, whether great or small, Do not be disheartened-God is over all;
Count your many blessings , angels will attend, Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.

Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

     And now for the final, most powerful nevertheless:  Galations 2:20 KJV

         I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
