Counsel for January

The following comes from W. W. Phelps, Almanac for the Year 1859: The Third after Leap Year; and after the 6th of April, Thirtieth year of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Great Salt Lake City, UT: J. McKnight, 1859), 3:
JANUARY gives time for reflection, and our Father gives the earth time to increase and man the strength to labor, sow and reap the benefits of his works: so that he that cultivates the soil successfully does more than he that commands armies. Meditate, then, in this month, what will increase grain, fruit and home made wares the coming year. Wise is that wise does.
