Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Spurgeon Quote on the Bible

Why, the Book has wrestled with me;
the Book has smitten me;
the Book has comforted me, the Book has smiled on me; the Book has frowned on me;
the Book has clasped my hand;
the Book has warmed my heart.  

The Book weeps with me, and sings with me;
it whispers to me, and it preaches to me;
it maps my way, and holds up my goings;
it is the young mans best companion, and is still my morning and evening Chaplain. 
~Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Thanks for this wonderful quotation, Michelle - and for all your wonderful posts, for that matter. I continue to follow your blog and benefit from your journey. I thank Gof for the grace He has given you to accept His good will, though it includes cancer. Btw, my son-in-law has been declared cancer-free of lymphoma as of the end of 2012! Praise God!
