Another neat quote...
Here's another quote I'd scribbled on a scrap of paper, this one taken from Streams in the Desert, Volume 2, by Mrs. Charles Cowman. The author of the verse is unknown.
"I want to make a quiet place Where those I love can see God's face, Can stretch their hearts across the earth, Can understand what spring is worth, Can count the stars, Watch violets grow, And learn what birds and children know."
The first two lines speak to me especially. I want my home, and my life, to be "a quiet place/where those I love can see God's face."
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
