    "Though He were a Son, He learned obedience by the things that He suffered."
    - Hebrews 5:6

    Should we expect less, if we follow in His footsteps?

    When we can welcome as a treasure those persons, those hard circumstances, those pains and mortifications, those treatments of our fellow, or those sad limitations in our lives, which always seem to humble us into the dust, nay, even rejoice in these things, knowing that they drive us deeper into the sweet mind of Jesus, then indeed we have gotton the victory.
    - G.D.Watson - Tribulation Worketh

    Sometimes, when all life's lessons have been learned,
    And sun and stars forevermore have set,
    The things which our weak judgement here has spurned-
    The things o'er which we grieved with lashes wet-
    Will flash before us out of life's dark night,
    As stars shine most in deeper tints of blue;
    And we shall see how all God's plans were right,
    And how what seemed unkind was love most true.
    - Mrs. M.R. Smith
