Miss Miriam Booth, daughter of the founder of the Salvation Army, a beautiful, brilliant, cultured woman, began her Christian work with great promise & had unusual success.
Very soon disease laid hold upon her & brought her down to the point of death. A friend visiting her one day told her that it seemed a pity that a woman so capable should be hindered by sickness from doing the Lord's work.
She replied with gentle grace, "It is great to do the Lord's work, but it is greater to do the Lord's will."
