Artemise R. Babington
Many million miles away
from earth far out beyond the
brightest star-God has
pl a'c e d the sun, that
huge ball of fire upon which
the existence of man so great
ly depends. Were its light
extinguished, earth would
grow cold and become barren,
plant and animal would die
and lastly man divested of all
those things necessary for pro
longing his existence, would
be no more.
Again were there perpetual
sunshine, earth would be
scorched, it would yield no
fruit and Mother Nature
fail in her mission. But this
is not the design of the Cre
ator. Divine Providence has
regulated the laws of nature
so that there will be both sun
shine and shadow--earth
shall bear fruit, plant, animal
and man shall live and give
homrage and glory to the Cre
Sunshine is one of the great
est blessings God has given
man. It is beneficial not only
to his material good but also
to that of his spirit. The sun
paints in beautiful colors the
sublime picture of nature
making the brilliant dyes
blend with deep shadow and
thus producing a perfect mas
terpiece. For the sun casts
long shadows upon the earth,
a fact which only illustrates
more vividly the perfect color
scheme of nature. Shade and
shine, it seems, have been en
tangled by some wild wind
are inseparable. The trees
show us a shadow for every
leaf,--in the rose there is a
shadow for every petal. The
sunshine falling upon the blue
waters of the lake, brings out
the various tints therein and
causes them to sparkle like so
many brilliant opals. Upon
the long sunny .road-way we
find shadow tracing fantastic,
design and too upon the sunlit
wall we mark its fingers.
Every object kissed by the
sun has its shadow and the
shadows are messages from
the land of the sun.
To human life, as in nature,
sunshine and shadow play a
most important part. Light
and shade are the very es
sence of life-they mark its
every phase. Youth has often
been called the morning of
life-its sunshine. And so it
is. Childhood days, we are
told, are the happiest. They
are filled with joy, hope and
noble aspirations. The world
is viewed only through young
and happy eyes for youth sees
nothing through dark specta
cles. Glorious visions bear
ing only the card "Happiness"
arise before the youthful
mind filling it with the bright
est sunshine.
A great sunlit garden, can
opied by a rainbow sky, in
which grow flowers of every
hue, filling the surrounding
air with fragrance,-long
aisles, smooth and white
barely marked by the foot
prints of time, majestic foun
tains which send their crystal
waters heavenward--this the
garden of youth, the garden
of the sunshine. Here there
is joy, here hope, here love,
Here the soul may look far out
upon that tumultuous sea of
life and still remain in undis
turbed peace for little does
youth know of the storms and
tempests which cause the
waves upon life's sea to dash!
high in angry fury-little does
it know of the many ship
wrecks caused by the ship
crashing against the rocks or
springing a leak in mid-ocean.
The curtain of innocence and
purity forbids the eyes of
youth to gaze upon such trag
edies. And so the sun of
youth shines on, flooding the
hearts of all with beautiful
sunshine-with happiness-
with joy. But every day
must have its shade, sunshine
must give place to shadow-
so youth must give place to
Old Age.
The day wanes, the last
trace of sunshine flees before
the gathering darkness, the
last note of the mocking
bird has been borne away by
the evening breeze and from
the distance there comes the
low sweet treble of the night
ingale,-deep shadow en
gulfs the day.
It is the evening of life, the
period of old age-the time of
sadness for the bright rays 1
from the sun of youth have e
died away and only the silver
moonlight shines upon the
earth and moonlight adds
pathos of life.
Here in the valley of the
shadoW we find the faded
rose-its petals are faded and l
tarnished by time.
The golden locks have
turned a silver, the eyes once
now wear a dull and weary
so full of merriment and fire
expression, the light and joy
ous step has given place to
the feeble and the cares and
sorrows of long years tell
their own story in the many i
wrinkles of the face once so
delicate--so beautiful! What
great changes time does
The soul too, has had its
share in the change. It has
received many deep and last
ing impressions. Sorrow and
toil have weighed heavily upon
it but it has stood the test and
now awaits its calling Home.
And then at last the call does I
come-and the soul, weary,
panting, joyfully answeri: '
c'ml"Ad h tn Ga
Sun, Our Divine Lord Himself,
comes bringing heavenly Sun
shine to flee the shadow of
death. And Oh, the glory of
that Blessed Sunshine- How
it expells all shadow and sor
row! How it fills the longing
t soul with love divine.
And erelong the wearied
sone meets the beautiful smile
of the Savior and at last finds
rest and peace in His Sacred
Heart,---the rest, the peace,
the love that lives throughout
