It is a common proverb, "If the outlook is not good, try the outlook." There is a silver lining to every cloud and a polar star in every night. Life is constantly beset with the fogs of discouragement which would obscure the gleam of the day-star of hope. None of us is exempt from the School of Hard Knocks. Seeming defeat meets us again and again on this earthly highway.
He who learns the golden secret of finding the azure gleam in the night will have learned how to take the remains of defeat and turn it into victory. All of the thorns of life cannot be removed, but they may be handled without defeat.
One of life's sharpest thorns is physical affliction. Discouragement finds fertile soil in a broken body. Despondency is the forerunner of defeat. The path of victory winds the sunlit hills of encouragement.
The chapters in this book deal for the most part with the thorn of physical suffering. The characters described are life-stories which have come under the author's personal observation.
If any who read this little volume find encouragement and a stimulation of faith, its purpose will be fulfilled.
