QUOTE (D.L. Moody) – Nov 30

November 30, 2013

English: Dwight Lyman Moody, founder of the No...

“I know Dwight is having a good time, and we should rejoice with him. What would the mansions be without children? He was the last to come into our circle, and he is the first to go up there! So safe, so free from all the sorrow we are passing through! I thank God for such a life. It was nearly all smiles and sunshine, and what a glorified body he will have, and with what joy he will await your coming! God does not give us such strong love for each other for a few days or years, but it is going to last forever, and you will have the dear little man with you for ages and ages, and love will keep increasing. The Master had need of him, or He would not have called him; and you should feel highly honored that you had anything in your home that He wanted.

I cannot think of him as belonging to earth. The more I think of him the more I think he was only sent to draw us all closer to each other and up to the world of light and joy. I could not wish him back, if he could have all earth could give him. . . . Dear, dear little fellow! . . . I have no doubt that when he saw the Saviour he smiled as he did when he saw you, and the word that keeps coming to my mind is this: ‘It is well with the child. . . .’ Thank God, Dwight is safe at home, and we will all of us see him soon.”
Your loving father,
D. L. Moody

In honor of D.L. Moody, one of the greatest evangelists of his day, who wrote these words to comfort his son and daughter-in-law during the loss of their one year old son, who died on this day in 1898.
