Graces unexercised are as sweet perfumes
slumbering in the cups of the flowers:
the wisdom of the great Husbandman
overrules diverse and opposite causes 
to produce the one desired result, and makes both affliction and consolation draw forth
the grateful odours of faith, love, patience,
hope, resignation, joy,
and the other fair flowers of the garden.
May we know by sweet experience, what this means.”        ~  Charles Spurgeon
