So you, too, are sorrowful now; but I will see you again, and your hearts will be happy, and no one can rob you of that happiness.

(John 16:22)

"The joy of the Lord

 is your refuge."

               Nehemiah 8:10


The comfort

and serene assurance

of this word

must be carried to our youth

in their loneliness and alienation;

to the middle-aged,

tortured by a creeping sense of mediocrity;

to the aged,

laboring under a sense of rejection;

to every man

who broods over a wound.
