Title The Spirit is Willing
Description From the example he set, John Blain must have and whether our work be planting, building, tending horses or driving a milk wagon, it should be looked upon as a blessing and not a curse, John Ruskin once said, M...we are not sent into the world to do anything into which we our own bread, and that should be done strenuously; other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily. Neither is to be done by halves, but with a will, and what is not worth this effort should not be done at all." Only when Jesse made the decision to sell the wagon and team was Grandfather forced to quit working. He of the lifting, as his body became weaker from the serious problem in his stomach, yet he felt he couldn't give up. One summer day Rose went to take Grace to the train for Ogden. When she returned she was told to go to the home of her parents, that her father was dying. Though he had suffered greatly with stomach cancer he had never quit working? Or did he quit working because he was about to die? Perhaps some day we shall know, but for now I will remember and revere a man I never knew, but whom I with others who have lived before me-still influences should go. Someone once said that God gave us work, not to burden but to bless us, and useful work willingly and effectively done is the finest expression of the human spirit. 122
