Neither Isolated, Nor Solitary

Rarely does one meet an individual who has not at some time in his experience believed his happiness, satisfaction, and sense of well-being to be dependent upon the personal presence of a loved one. In these days when husbands and wives, parents and children, are separated by the necessities of war, there are cruel wrenchings of the human heart, and mighty wrestlings with grief, sadness, and desolation. But even while the tears flow, it is learned that one must turn to God for companionship, completeness, and the true sense of home.

A married couple who had enjoyed a happy and satisfying companionship were separated by the husband's leaving to serve in the armed forces. The pain of parting was deep and poignant, and it seemed as though earth must surely be darkened for them. But in this experience Love taught them a most valued lesson.
