...and we brought home a HUGE basket full of books last week.
Sophy's mother advises this receipt. She says it makes a successful cake, and easily prepared:
One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, and four eggs beat well together. It may be baked in pans or cups, no more than twenty minutes.
Mammann disciplined Matty today..."You must learn to like the doing of that which we like you to do. Glad submission of the will," she explained, "is the obedience that proves control. I do not mean you merely to comply. Reflect, accept, obey!"
...Discipline of will, not relinquishment, is the lesson's desired end. How hard this is for each to learn, and how necessary.
At the start of this journal I wrote of my wish to stay here for ever and ever; also that I wished to become better and more gladly able to do what I am asked. Today, reflecting on Aunt Lucy's letter, I know I shall find good consequence in what ever is decided by Father and Mammann. Thus it now appears to me that trust, and not submission, defines obedience.
