THE intention of this little book is to strengthen
faith in the universal providence of God, to make felt that our new knowledge does not eliminate THE FATHER, to comfort hearts that mourn, to help the young soul upon its upward way. So may these Morning Thoughts, sent to earth of our Father, through our brothers and sisters in Him, Cheer the Day, and may we all be one in faith, confidence and love.
