The BOOK you are writing

“You ought to live holy and godly lives.” 2 Peter 3:11

The only way to have a stainless and beautiful year at its close–is to keep the days, as they pass, all pure and sweet, with the loveliness of holy, useful living.

It is thus, in little days–that our years come to us. We have but the one small fragment to fill and beautify at a time.

The year is a book, and for each day–one fair white page is opened before us.

And we are artists, whose duty it is to put something beautiful on the page.

Or we are poets, and are to write some lovely thought, some radiant sentence, on each leaf as it lies open before us.

“That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” 1 Timothy 2:2
~J. R. Miller, “Counsel and Help” 1907
