"WHY DID YOU NOT TELL ME?

"
A little blind child had a surgical operation performed that resulted in the restoration of her sight. The oculist had skillfully pared off the integument that had prevented the light from passing through to the retina, and then the eyes were bandaged for a while until the wounded parts should be somewhat healed. At length the hour arrived when the bandage, which had been from time to time partially and temporarily removed, was to be removed altogether. Ah! what a moment of supreme interest and anxiety to all her friends, but more especially to the little patient herself, who as yet had never seen! This child, when her eyes could bear the light, and by her kind physician had now been permitted to open them, and for the first time to look out upon the beauty there was around her, realizing, indeed, as no words could ever show, "that the light is truly sweet, and it is a pleasant thing for the eyes to behold the sun," cried out with delight, "Oh, Mother, why did you not tell me it was so beautiful?" The mother, bursting into tears, replied, "I tried to tell you, my dear, but the words wouldn't make you understand." Precisely. And so, withal, is it with the Christian when he attempts to tell what is the joy unspeakable and full of glory, the peace of God that passeth understanding, the love of God shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Ghost, and what is the excellency of the knowledge of that Christ for whom he would, if necessary, joyfully suffer the loss of all things.
