"Lord, this humble house we'd keep, sweet with play and calm with sleep. Help us so that we may give beauty to the lives we live. Let Thy bounty and Thy grace shine upon our dwelling place." E. A. Guest


Some Days..

Some days you just want to stay curled up indoors

and indulge yourself with steaming hot chocolate and something sweet.

Days when your vegetable seedlings are sent sleeping under the downy quilt of sudden snow

and your clothesline has surrendered to the gales of a fierce winter wind.

Yes, on those kind of days you need some sweetness to soothe the mind

and help you to remember that one season quickly passes on to another

 and soon enough, you will be taking tea again under the summer shade of a heady lilac hedge.
Let nothing trouble you.
Let nothing frighten you.
For everything passes but God will never change.
Patient endurance will obtain everything
Whoever has God, wants for nothing at all.

St Teresa of Avila
My Hearts for Home goal this week is to help the Woodman repair my clothesline, and to look for the chocolate-coated  side of every circumstance that comes my way!!

    Grace & Peace to you dear one,
