The World's Heed

So many gods, so many creeds, So many paths that wind and wind, While just the art of being kind, Is all the sad world needs. C. W. Wilcox

Don't look for the flaws as you go through life, And even when you find them, It is wise and kind to be some what blind. And look for the virtue behind them. C. W. Wilcox


High in the heavens I saw the mom this morning Albiet the sun shone bright; Unto my soul it spoke. In voice of warning. "Remember Night!"

They seemed grateful that I had opened my home for the Sunday School, while in reality I have been getting the best of it myself. For I have enjoyed having them come and the oppertunity of having a class to teach each week has been a great help to me, and while the gift itself was beautiful indeed, yet perhaps it was "The thought that prompts it makes it dear" as someone had written and I hope that I shall always be better and stronger for the confidence which they placed in me in the cause which is so dear to my heart, but words are poor things indeed to express ones feelings when your friends place such confidence in you.
