January 15

AND all through life I see a Cross,
Where sons of God yield up their breath;
There is no gain except by loss,
There is no life except by death;
There is no vision save by faith,
Nor glory but by bearing shame,
Nor justice but by taking blame:
And that Eternal Passion saith,
Be emptied of glory and right and name.
Walter C. Smith


NOT to hate anything but sin; to be full of love to every creature; to be frightened at nothing; to be sure that all things will turn to good; not to mind pain or loss, because it is our Father’s will; to know that nothing—no, not if the earth was be burned up, or the waters come and drown us— nothing could part us from God Who loves us, and Who fills our souls with peace and joy, because we sure that whatever He wills is holy, just, and good.
George Eliot


IF all the stars withdraw their light whilst you are in the way of God, assure yourselves that the min is ready to rise.
John Owen
