Secrets of Happy Home Life
(J. R. Miller, "Secrets of Happy Home Life")
Home is among the holiest of words.
A true home is one of the most sacred of places.
It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the
world's perils and alarms. It is a resting place to
which at close of day the weary retire to gather
new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow.
It is the place . . .
where love learns its lessons;
where life is schooled into discipline and strength;
where character is molded.
What are some of the secrets of happy home life?
The answer might be given in one word: Christ.
Christ at the marriage altar;
Christ on the bridal journey;
Christ when the new home is set up;
Christ when the baby is born;
Christ when a child dies;
Christ in the pinching times;
Christ in the days of plenty;
Christ in the nursery, in the kitchen, in the parlor;
Christ in the toil and in the rest;
Christ along all the years.
Christ is the secret of happy home life!
