Simply Abiding


"Open wide every avenue of your being to receive the blessed influences your Divine Husbandman may bring to bear upon you. Bask in the sunshine of His love. Drink in the waters of His goodness. Keep your face upturned to Him. You need make no efforts to grow. But let your efforts instead be all concentrated on this, that you abide in the Vine."

Hannah Whitall Smith

Blessings,
Linda

I need to re-read "The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life." It's been years. Thanks for the reminder.

I will ask you again - WHEN are you going to publish that devotional book??
