“The idol of her happy home,
Whose grateful inmates kneel and pray

That heaven would bless for years to come, –
Long years of bright, rejoicing life, –
This honored mother, friend and wife.”

A little constant thought, self-denial, fidelity, a true life each with each, and each with God, will not only save all unavailing regret, and insure the purest peace under all experience, but make the thought of reunion and life again in the Home of God, chief among incentives to His service.
