Little Carrie Collins.

Carrie, daughter of Mr. Miles A. and Toccoa Collins, was born Feb. 25, 1878, and died in Cartersville, Ga., Aug. 14, 1879.

These parents have been bereaved of their only child.  How sad!  God has removed other children from this family circle, and now little Carrie has been received into our “Father’s house.”  Weep not, fond parents, you will see her again!  Jesus has said, “suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God.”  When David’s child died, he said, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”  How consoling to parents to believe that bye and bye they shall be joined to their children, who have died, in a state of conscious existence.  How beautiful the words of the Christian poet:

“I take these little lambs,” said he
“And lay them in my breast;
Protection they shall find in me,
In me be ever blest.”
