If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad countenance, and be of good cheer. — Job 9:27

Go through life with soft influences breathing around thee. Keep thy heart high above the many-colored mist of earth and above its storm clouds.
— Jean Paul Richter.

Recollection is the only paradise from which we cannot be turned out.
— Jean Paul Richter.

Come, Disappointment, come!
Thou art not stern to me;
Sad monitress! I own thy sway,
A votary sad in every day,
I bend my knee to thee,
From sun to sun
My race will run;
I only bow, and say, My God, thy will be done!
— Henry Kirke White.


Gracious Father, help me to respond cheerfully when called upon to give. May I never repent of tenderness which others fail to appreciate, but may I be glad of all that I give and for all I receive. Amen.
