Consoling Thoughts From Father Faber
Everything which increases our feeling of dependence upon God is sweet, and safe, and true, and right, and the best thing. Besides which, God is the end for which all things were given. Nothing good is meant to stay with us. It would not keep good. It would spoil. Every creature is a channel through which things find their way back to God, as surely as blood finds its way back to the heart through endless turnings, and has done its work, not in delaying anywhere, which would be disease, but in passing on, and in passing swiftly, kindling and making alive as it went along.
