Almond, Vol. 1 of 5 (Classic Reprint)
The poem 'Almond' was printed some years ago in the Christian Standard and Home Journal, in weekly installments, and some readers, especially my friends, desired to see it in book form. Their advice has influenced me in correcting and revising, in abridging and adding to, the volume now presented in the following pages.
The author, under the nom de plume of Almond, is an old man. His bodily flourishing is like that of the almond tree when it is in full bloom. His life has been long, active, somewhat singular in events and incidents, from peculiar circumstances and experiences. The dealings of God to him in his religious experience, since his conversion from skepticism to higher degrees in grace and providential manifestations, have absorbed much of his meditations. Bible-thoughts, in Christ Jesus, on his knees, have been of spiritual profit to him, and he wishes to be useful, if he can, to others. All spiritual tendencies God-ward are from Christ, and are increased and strengthened by prayer and faith. Inward power of saving grace has given him some experience in overcoming temptations, and enduring sufferings with patience, and his tribulations have increased his knowledge of divine things.
