Oh! the pure delight between God and glorified souls. God looks on them with an enjoyed eye as his own by many dear titles, and is ravished with the replex of his own excellence shining in them. "As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride (it is the language of devine love) so their God rejoices over them. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in his love; He will rejoice over thee with singing."
He is infinitely delighted in the communication of his goodness to them. And what a blessed rest do they find in the complete fruition of His goodness, All their desires quietly expire in his bosom. What triumphs of joy follow! Can we frame a fuller conception of happiness than to be perfectly loved by the best and most blessed Being and perfectly to love him, and to partake of the richest emanations of his loving kindness, that is far more valuable and desirable than life itself? --Dr. Bates.

To have God pleased with us is the best of all the good things in the universe or in eternity.
Praying without faith is like pumping where there is no spring of water. All the effort is in vain.
The face is made every day by its morning prayer, and by its morning look out of windows which open upon heaven.--Parker.
The wise man preserves in his own bosom the sacred flame which enlightens him, though winds may blow and tempests roar without.
