SUSAN TEALL PERRY
American poet
(19th century)

Most of you will have a very happy Children's Day, we trust; but there will be many of Christ's little ones who will have to be at home on beds of sickness and pain, and cannot go to the Lord's house and worship Him among the beautiful flowers and loving friends who will make everything so attractive. Remember such ones. Carry them flowers and some sweet, helpful words, to make the day less burdensome to them. There may be others obliged to stay away, who have not suitable clothes to wear, because of their poverty. Seek out such and overcome any hindrances in their way that you can, so that as many as possible of Christ's little ones may gather together in His courts on that especial day.
      - [Children's Day]

Some kind hearts have lived in every generation, but it is only within a few years that the older Christians have come into such perfect love and sympathy with children's needs as to set apart a Sunday for their especial benefit. Those who planned the grand day seem to enjoy it as much as the little ones, for the churches are full of grown-up people, many of them with silvery hair and wrinkled faces; but many of the wrinkles seem to be smoothed out by the happy, fresh looks that come over them when the children's voices are heard taking a prominent part in the worship. We older ones can testify that Children's Day has benefited us in many ways, and is the Sunday of the whole year which we enjoy the best.
      - [Children's Day]
