December SUNDAY 4 1887

On account of rain which has fallen moderately at intervals both yesterday and to day, we have not been able to attend our usual church service. It is a comfort to realize the blessedness of God's service even at home, on these holy days to have the time for reading meditation and prayer. Am ashamed to think that I had been living beneath my privilege of late. Have been so forgetful of My God amidst the cares and anxieties of life, and yet. He has graciously from with through all. Lord help me to be steadfast and unbreavable always abundant in the labours {illegible}.

December MONDAY 5 1887

Lewis and I have been working away at out new cow stables as usual to day. We do not seem to be makeing much headway; but we hope soon, by steady work to get along with our job. Shut up our turkeys for the Christmas market to day. The weather has become cooler since the rain, but, is beautiful indeed. Am enjoying the sunshine of Gods presense, again. What a mercy, that all is not dark and gloomy in life. Surely He hath gone all {thing?} well.
