FEBRUARY TWELFTH

The great moral combat between human life and each human soul must be single.... When a soul arms for battle she goes forth alone.
—Owen Meredith.

Almighty God, I thank thee for the courage that comes with a great life. Help me to be brave, even if it is only that others may be blest. May I lay a careful foundation and plan to build the best that I can afford. Amen.
