The God of all Comfort
Continued from Tuesday, January 18.
>f courtg for Hie same things -
ig at the same ends feel
WHEN we first lose the
rjily presence of one
we love, it is rare, indeed, to be
able to rise to this sense of B
spiritual communionof nnj
realisation that both are living
in this wide world of God's
Consciousness,and that be
cause both are loving, they are
still in touch.
Hut this oneness of spirit
which survive** Death was Hie
true bond of union even in that
old lifethough the conscious
ness of it was often choked un
del the bodily expression of it,
in look and word and kiss
Bui the abiding communion
of casing for the si
aiming at the sain
ing the same feelings was go
ing on in those old days,-
though in the joy of d lilj seeing
and hearing, we may not have
been full) alive to it.
()ui comfort now lies in be
(oming aware of this , ,. neu .... hich is too deep to be
interfered with by Jeath or
by Life !
' We used to enjoy both sorts
of communion sharing both
the outwurd life of the hen th
* and the invnrd life of the heart
and SOttl. One is now taken
from u^. and we /ue drivenon
pain of being utterly forlorn -
to tutn our thoughts to the one
which is left-
It may 1"" thai in old days
were too satisfied with theeasi
er surface union, and negh
tl,e deep i links which would
have given deeper h ippin is.
But, .'it all events, in the deeper
world, which is the inevitable
futu# fot both, it is cdear that
we must learn to tastethedei p
er happiness, or have no happi
nes- at all.
Perhaps to day's loss is meant
to knit closer a union which
\ .1 in danger of resting "" -"'
face ties. And if our union in
the past was already on thosi
deeper lines, then a sense of its
present and indestructible oni
ness will be attained all the
sooner.
But ii rests largely with our
own habit of mind and not
only on our prayers to God:
it is a matter of will and habit
whether we suffer our thoughts
to dwell on the blank of losing
the earthly presence, or whether
a! evei v touch of such pain, we
will -fully lift our heart to the
thought of the deeper union
wl.icdi is Ours still
For hist nice, when we hear
or see something we should
both enjoy, Uhen,
"Surprised by joy -impa-
tient is the wind,
We turn to sh.oi' the trans
port,"
it rests with us whether we sink
down under the deadening sense
of solitude, or whether we re
solutely, at the moment, tune
ourselves to share the joy of no
bier beauty \\ hi( h we believe
our Dead are s> rejoicing in,
that we would not for the world
call them back from it. We
can rejoice with them so truly
that stings of loss will only
rouse us to live more constantly
in their new Life, until we hud
that we love them with
"Such communion that no
pla< e on earth
Can ever be a solitude to
us."

Friday, January 28th, 1916
To gain this habit of mind
makes our memories rich pos
sessions gladdening our present
life, whereas too often memo
nes and anniversaries are allow
ed to be id >'.\, killing all
the sunshine of our day and
bringing gloom into the lives
of otl
Birthdays i into this world or
the next will always bespecial
days, but when the rest of the
were gladdened by his pre-
sence their interest was onlj
par*, of the general joy of daily
intercourse.
They were part of that life
,m I increased its joy : may the)
not keep the same place, if we
resolutely dwell on the truth
that we are still living together
in the deeper things of life-
still sharing the Angel's Bread:
instead of allowing ourseli es to
br >"d on what is equally true,
that we aie s: irvin i for vmir
part of the old daily bread.
The earthly language of love
is no longer the one u hn h
reaches him. 'I he love we e\ -
pr< ssed iii th it old language
still n a hes him, but in a new
tongue which as yet we only
speak stammeringty though we
can learn it better every day.

f<.iture of the 1'olak Bkar is its beautiful white coat,
which is in keeping with the whiteness "f its sur-

The beauty of Sunlight

the easy way in which it
