About this product
- DescriptionRuth Medway, a Christian mother, brooded over her eight children who had left home. Ishmael, her beloved ninth child, took the schoolmistress' daughter to a cave and roasted some wild eggs. The unusual consequences of this event shaped his life greatly. Where can we find a home again, mother? he asked at last; there's place like home. Up there! she said, lifting her dim eyes to the great sky above them; if God gives us other home here in this world, He's got one ready there for thee and me. Let t your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; I go to prepare a place for you. -John 14:1, 2.
