Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him and bless His name.
- Psalm 100:4
Dear Daughters & YBW:
I am troubled to see so many young women today with a confused look on their faces, and seemingly no direction in their lives. I attribute this problem to their not having a purpose for their lives, and therefore having no goals to work toward. This is a tragedy!
I trust that you are doing well today.
I am writing you now to encourage you to take the “road less traveled.” You might be asking, what is the road less traveled?
Well, in short, it is the tough, lonely road of self-discipline. This road is about delaying gratification and pleasure to accomplish a worthy goal or pursuit. Practicing discipline is much easier said than done. Discipline is a great idea, but implementing it is difficult.
It is impossible to contemplate the character of Jesus, with serious and devout attention, and not be charmed with it. We see in Him, all the human passions in the highest perfection. His joys were grave, His griefs were just. His gentleness and His severity, His holiness and His humanity – were in perfect harmony with each other. He manifested great tenderness, and genuine affection, and sensibility to human woe on all occasions.
- John Fawcett
“Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”
— 1 Corinthians 13:8
“Love is what it is.”
— Daniel White Jr.
I can truly say that my dad was a loving man, and I believe that is the testimony of everyone who knew him. Not only did he have a special love for his children, but he loved all people and people loved him. I doubt very seriously if my dad had an enemy in this world.
