THE DEWS OF OCTOBER
"The greatest operations, both in nature and
grace," wrote Richard Cecil, "are the most silent and
fury is soon exhausted, and its effects are but
partial and soon remedied."
"But, the dews, [though small, revive] the very life
of large portions of the earth."
Oh, that we could learn a lesson from the soft silent
dews of an October morn... Giving life and refreshment,
struggled through the summer months to survive the
parching rays of the summer months.
Talk about revival! Silently, gently, majestically,
the moisture arrives daintily on tiptoe, reviving
and revitalizing the sod... In quietness and in reverence...
of God. The dews of October.
