Love and Pain
Make their own measure of all things that be.
No clock's slow ticking marks their deathless strain;
The life they own is not the life we see;
Love's single moment is eternity.
—Thomas W. Higginson.
Life is made stronger
Love is made longer
Life is made sweeter,
Truly worth living;
Love is completer,
—M. B. S.
In love of the brethren be tenderly affectioned one to another; in honor preferring one another.
—Romans 12. 10.
Loving Father, I thank thee that every morn breaks in a new day without the sadness of yesterday or the gladness of to-morrow. I pray that I may not lose the love and joy that it brings to-day. Amen.
