Our lives receive coloring from everything with which we come in contact. As some colors fade, while others are enduring, so with the influences which affect us. There is nothing that abides with us longer than the sentiments we read. As has been said, “The written words, the unspoken thoughts that we have once admitted to the shrine of our minds, are there forever.” How important, then, that our reading be of a nature which shall develop our noblest powers, tending to lift us above the fitful, unworthy pleasures of this world, and to fit us for a home in heaven!
With this aim in view,—of helping to elevate the thoughts and motives, and to cultivate a taste for that which will feast the soul, and give eternal good,—the editor has sought to make this little volume an aid in forming a true and noble character. Such thoughts have been carefully selected as would, either directly or indirectly, teach some good life-lesson.
The book is designed for all. The little ones will find stories suited to their fancy, and the pictures will help them to spend many a pleasant hour; while the older ones will find many items of interest scattered here and there, from which they may derive instruction as well as entertainment.
May the blessing of the Father in heaven, and the sunshine of His presence, attend this little work wherever it shall go.
Scatter sunshine as you go,
Little Volume, through the snow;
Or in summer’s golden day,
Shower blessings on thy way.
