"It is good to look to the past to gain appreciation for the present and perspective for the future...It is good to reflect upon the work of those who labored so hard and gained so little in this world, but out of whose dreams and early plans, so well nurtured, has come a great harvest of which we are the beneficiaries. Their tremendous example can become a compelling motivation for us all, for each of us is a pioneer in his own life, often in his own family..."

One of my most favorite songs:

a song by K. Newell Dayley (see copyright below)

A marvelous work has begun to come forth among all the children of men.
O ye that embark in the service of God, give heart, mind,
and strength unto Him;
For prophets have spoken and angels have come to lift the world from sin,
That Christ may reign over all the earth and bless his gathered kin.

With faith in every footstep, we follow Christ, the Lord;
And filled with hope through His pure love, we sing with one accord.

Those marvelous Saints who embraced this great work
and shared it in lands far and near;
Who gave all their heart, mind, and strength to the Lord
with wisdom and vision so clear;
Now stand as examples of virtue and faith, of souls prepared to hear,
Of knowledge sure, born of humble heart, and love that banished fear.

If we now desire to assist in this work and thrust in our sickle with might,
If we will embark in the service of God to harvest in fields that are white;
Our souls may receive the salvation of God--the fullness of His light,
That we may stand, free of sin and blame, God's glory in our sight.
