Tribulation and Sorrow

From the pen of Mary Winslow (1774-1854) to a friend:

Life to me has had its great and precious blessings, but tribulation and sorrow have followed me, and yet not one stroke that was not needful. Christ has been in them all—His love has sweetened all—His presence has comforted me through them all—and His grace has sustained me under them all.
