Secret's

The litte sharp vexations And the briars that catch and fret, Why not take all to the Helper Who has never failed us yet? Tell Him about the heartache,And tell Him the longings, too; Tell Him the baffled purpose When we scarce know what to do. Then, leaving all our weakness With the One divinely strong, Forget that we bore the burden, And carry away the song. By Margaret Sangster
---in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength (Isa. 30:15) Do you know what Luther said? ''Suffer and be still and tell no man thy sorrow; trust in God--His help will not fail thee.'' This is what Scripture calls keeping silent before God. To talk much of one's sorrows makes one weak, but to tell one's sorrows to Him who heareth in secret, makes one strong and calm. Tholuck

It's a wonderful day. I'm up early and on my way to church.

Will you all be watching the Oscars tonight?

Beautiful, Patsy!

We are to have a sunny day, so I'm looking forward to the sunrise. And going to church, of course.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
