December 20, 1747

1747 December 20 (Sunday).  It Snow’d again last night — but to Day bright very pleasant and Comfortable.  On Mat. 13.53 to the End of the Chapter. P.M. on Eccl. 8.13. Mr. Stratton of Waltham and Mr. Samuel Fay juniors wife din’d here.  O that God would help us suitably to Entertain the Lord Jesus Christ and not by our Unbelief Prevent Him in the mighty works of his Grace and Spirit upon our Souls! and O that we might not be of the wicked, that vainly imagine they shall prolong their Day.  May we remember that our Days are as a shadow and may we fear before God that it may go well with us!
