An Unwilling Guest (Hill, GL, 1902)
Often a theme in Mrs. Hill's stories is that God places people in your life that can help change your life for the better.
Evelyn's visit to the Grey's household was unexpected, as was the outfit she wore to dinner. Her first meal there was steak, peaches and cream, honey and biscuits, coffee and sponge cake.
One morning, Mrs. Grey made batter cakes by beating in rice, eggs and milk. They were served with fried potatoes. Allison made an elaborate dessert for evening with eggs, whipped cream and gelatine. Evelyn woke late so she had a tray with brown and white bread, butter, grapes and milk.
Another morning, Maurice helped make waffles and syrup.
Follow Allison's pattern and read 1 Corinthians 13 some time today.
Maurice read about DL Moody, who made it a rule never to be alone with a person five minutes without leaving his testimony of Christ, and found out whether his companion was a Christian.
