That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
~ Emily Dickinson
With all the happened this past week in Connecticut, I know some have found it hard to be in the Christmas Spirit. More than ever I find myself leaning on God and prayer. A quote from Charles DIckens A Christmas Carol sums up how I feel... “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
Tomorrow I'll share a few Christmasy photos from our little Rose Cottage. Before you know it Christmas will be upon us!
