A Puzzling Pair

A Puzzling PairA Puzzling Pair by Amy Le Feuvre.

The young twins, Guy and Berry, heard a sermon about Christ’s second coming and they wondered if they were ready. Guy drew a picture of people being raised with Christ and went around asking people if they would like to be in the picture. The question challenged people to evaluate their own readiness. “The independence of the twins was a great puzzle to their stepmother,” but the spirited children were good witnesses for Christ through their innocent ways.

The Story of Mary Jones and Her Bible

The Story of Mary jones and Her BibleThe Story of Mary Jones and Her Bible by Mary E. Ropes.

Mary Jones was poor and illiterate. She learned to read and walked two miles to study a neighbor's Bible. A resolution became fixed in her mind that she must have a Bible of her own. For six years she did odd jobs for halfpennies, until she had enough to buy a Bible. One bright morning she walked barefoot 25 miles to buy the Bible. When she reached Mr. Charles, he said that he did not have any Bibles for sale. Mary broke down and wept bitterly, and his heart was so touched that he could not deny her a Bible. Mr. Charles, deeply moved by Mary's story, was taken by conviction to supply Bibles for all of Wales. He petitioned before the Religious Tract Society in London, and was warmly received. In March, 1804, the British and Foreign Bible Society was established for the purpose of Bible distribution worldwide and is still active today.

"If but one heart is moved by the perusal of these pages to more earnest work Mary Jones, for the Master, to self-denial and loving service in the spread of His truth; to a more eager study of God's Word, and a greater zeal in circulating and making it known among others—then indeed this little story of the poor Welsh girl and her Bible will not have been written in vain."

Roses

RosesRoses by Amy Le Feuvre.

Mrs. Fitzherbert was asked to take care of Dimple, an eight year old orphaned girl. She gave Dimple a plot of ground to grow her own garden. The book uses garden analogies to teach lessons throughout: "Yes, I see a lot of weeds this afternoon. A nasty ugly one has just cropped up, called disobedience; and impatience and self-will have been up some time, and are growing bigger every day." The story teaches that roses must have a gardener to grow well and so we see the need of God tending our souls.
