where, having discussen that, I tak
now Paul's favorite idea of the Chiri:

these we knew. Oh, liow fnihar their

walked to the house of God in con.
pany. Have they forgotten us? Those
fattiers and mothers startedt us on the
road of life. Are they careless as to
% htqt becomes of us? And those chil

"Mother, do not worry."
They remember the day they left us.
They remernber the agony of the last
farewell. Though years in heaven,
they know our faces They remember
our sorrows. They speak our names.
'They watch this light for heaven. Nay;
I see them rise up and lean over and
wave before us their recognition anil
Pncouragement. That gallery is not
ull.. They are keeping places for uts.
After we have slain the lion they ex
pect the King to call ui, say ing, "Colmie

in the arenit I wipe the sweat from my
brow and stand tiptoe, reaching up iny
