In the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the Lord.--EX. xvi. 7.

Serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope.--ROM. xii. 11, 12.

  Every day is a fresh beginning,
    Every morn is the world made new.
  You who are weary of sorrow and sinning,
  Here is a beautiful hope for you;
    A hope for me and a hope for you.
SUSAN COOLIDGE.

Be patient with every one, but above all with yourself. I mean, do not be disturbed because of your imperfections, and always rise up bravely from a fall. I am glad that you make a daily new beginning; there is no better means of progress in the spiritual life than to be continually beginning afresh, and never to think that we have done enough.
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES.

Because perseverance is so difficult, even when supported by the grace of God, thence is the value of new beginnings. For new beginnings are the life of perseverance.
E. B. PUSEY.
