God loves beauty. See it in the flower
that peeps out of the crannied wall : see
it in the star that twinkies and blinks at
you from out the depths above; see it in
the landscape unrolling as a picture
down the valley and marred only by the
unshapely erections of man. Let na
ture alone, and it is hard to improve
upon ita work. Let it cover a fallen
tree with a clambering vine, let it weave
the moss with deft fingers over Che hard

The body which pleases God must bc
a glorious body. - 'It is sown in dis
honor; it is raised in glory." Paul
cans this earthly body a vile body, and
looked at from one point of view, that
statement is true. This body is ever
snowing the effects of sin and suffering.
A course of sin, a single sinful act,
leaves its trace upon the body as surely
as the flame sweeping over the field
leaver a swath of black. Old age comes
on and the body is bent with infirmity,
there is nothing glorious about that;
sickness leaves the cheeks hollow and
pinched, there is nothing glorious about
that: and if the body bus any glorv
here, it is like that of the ilower which
springs up in the morning and at even
ing is cut down and withers away; and
if the bodv has anv glorv here, how is
that glory gone when the poor death
striken body is laid away in the dust of
the earth ! But all this is to beehanered.
