JUNE SEVENTEENTH

Very early, I perceived that the object of life is to grow.
—Margaret Fuller.

Many a genius has been slow of growth. Oaks that flourish for a thousand years do not spring up into beauty like a reed.
—George Henry Lewes.

And Jesus advanced in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
—Luke 2. 52.

Almighty God, thy power is so great I cannot express it; help me to comprehend the meaning of it, that I may feel more profoundly thy expectations of my life. May I remember that to forget that life is eternal may make me to lose all it has grown. Amen.
