Of all the exercises of the unfettered
mind, perhaps none is attended with , a
more benign influence than that of indul
ging in kind remembrance of the absent.
Every loving word that fell from the
lips of the absent is treasured with - ten
derness. : Each act is recollected with af
fection. ' We look forward to meeting
with unboundedhappiness. . '
Have we parted in anger? .Time soft
ens us into indifference at least , into a
quiet acknowledgement of past, friend
ship. Have we parted in silence ort es
trangement ? This, too, wears away, and
we xneet agajn to forget the past in future
communions. Have we parted in grief?
The sorrow is mutually borne, and ten
derly consigned to the corner of our hearts
dfevoted to the absent sharer. ,
, Have we parted in love? No joy so
great as the remembrance of 4it none
even so sacred or , delightful as the re
union. k i : ,
Have we been parted by death ? Ah !
the affection that travels with the flown
spirit to its home in the realms of light !
The changed but ever increased sacred
ness of the love that bound us on earth, i3
now; freed from its alloy, while the unfet
tered spirit hovers near, to watch over us
and bear the incense of truthful and puri
fied affection on the wings of enduring
love 'Absent from sight, to the spirit
ever near no shade of earth mingles in
the holy office of a ministering angel,'
whose sweet Influence is like the gentle
dew upon the fragrant flower, which ex
hales a perfume unseen but ever grateful
to the perception of the inborn spirit.
The mere lapse of years is net life.-
To eat, drink, and sleep; to be exposed to
darkness and the light ; to pace round in
the mill of habit, and turn the wheel of
wealth, to make reason our: book-keeper
and turn thought in an implement of
trade this is not life. In all this, but a
poor fraction of the consciousness of hu
minity is awakened ; 'and the sanctities
still lumber which makes it most worth
while to live. Knowledge, truth, love,
beauty, goodness, faith,, alone call, give
vitality to the mechanism of : existence ;
the laugh of mirth which vibrates through
the heart; the tears that freshen the dry
waste within ; the musia that brings child
hood balk; the prayer that calls the future
near; the doubt which makes us meditate;
the death that startles us with mystery;
the anxiety that ends in trust are true
nourishment of our natural being.
