in hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the ages began.
Titus 1:2 NET
Truth is sensitive and jealous of the least encroachment of its sacredness.
– A. Bronson Alcott
Faith that withstood the shocks of toil and time,
Hope that defied despair,
Patience that conquered care,
And loyalty whose courage was sublime;
Teaching us how to seek the highest goal,
To earn the true success;
To live to love, to bless,
And make death proud to take a royal soul.
– Louisa M. Alcott
Nor is it
Wiser to weep a true occasion lost,
But trim our sails, and let old bygones be.
– Alfred Tennyson
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live in truth; and without fear of life or death live content in the faith of eternal life. Amen.
