How beautiful to be with God.

Frances E. Willard

We are sure that nothing can be lost in God’s hands. When He takes our joys and treasures from us they are safe in His keeping.
“God keeps a niche
in heaven to hold our idols, and albeit
He brake them to our faces and denied
That our close kisses should impair their white,
I know we shall behold them, raised, complete
The dust swept from their beauty-“
and that after a while He will give them back to us in a way in which we can keep them forever.”
-J.R. Miller, D.D.

God calls out loves ones but we lose not wholly
What He has given
They live on earth in thought and deed, as truly
As in heaven.
