Work While it is Day

Excerpt from a letter by William Carey to his Son, Jabez, February 3, 1817:

What need have we to work while it is day. The night of death will soon come when none of us can work. I look with deep regret on my past life and am ashamed to see what a loiterer I have been.

Scott,
Good to hear from you. Glad you stopped by the blog. You'll have to stop by Madison when you are back in this area visiting your in-laws. Please pass on my greetings to Pearl. Every blessing,
Dean
