William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Wander a whole summer, if you can. Thousands of God's wild blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted. If you are business-tangled and so burdened by duty that only weeks can be got out of the heavy laden year, give a month at least. The time will not be taken from your sum of life. Instead of shortening it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal. Nevermore will time seem short or long and cares will never again fall heavily on you, but gently and kindly as gifts from heaven. This quotation is from no. 237, pp. 17 and 19.


Sunset, v. 23, no. 1, July, 1909.
