What does it take to stop you?

The founder of the Salvation Army, General William Booth (above, right), had lost his eyesight. His son, Bramwell (above, left), was given the task of telling his father there would be no recovery.

“Do you mean that I am blind?” the General asked.

“I hear we must contemplate that,” his son replied.

“I shall never see your face again?” Booth queried.

“No, probably not in this world.”

“Bramwell,” said the General, “I have done what I could for God and for His people with my eyes. Now I shall do what I can for God without my eyes.”
