"I will sing of mercy and judgment.
 Unto You, O Lord, will I sing." Psalm 101:1

The believer's life is changeful and chequered.
The path along which he is retracing his steps
back to paradise is paved with stones of
variegated hues. And yet, painfully diversified
as are often the events in his history, that very
diversity is as essential to the symmetry and
completeness of his Christian character as are
different shades of coloring to the perfection
of a picture, or as opposite notes in music are
to the creation of harmony.  (Octavius Winslow)
