Excerpt from Weepers Instructed: A Sermon, Preached at the Funeral of Mrs. Abigail Woolsey Welles Ludlow, Wife of the Rev. H. G. Ludlow, Friday, March 2d, 1849
I will mention one reason more why our sorrows should be borne with cheerfulness,-they will be short. All our trials... and sufferings here must be short; for life itself passes like the weaver's shuttle. ~our light af¿ictions which are but for a moment - says the Apostle. 0! What are a few ¿eeting hours, or a few days of weeping here, compared with that eternity before us '2 Our sorrows are so transient, light, so like nothing, they can form no comparison with that eternal weight of glory to he revealed in as. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Our sorrows 'are like passing clouds, so ¿itting and transient we scarcely get time to drop' our tears before the sun breaks forth in its endless glory upon us. Oh! I have often thought, how amazed we shall be, how we shall wonder at ourselves, when we enter upon eternal scenes, to think that we should ever have been disturbed by any affliction or trial which could take place in a period so so short as are the scenes of earth.
