Sonnet 73
by William Shakespeare (1609)
clr gif

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see’st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west;
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the deathbed whereon it must expire,
Consumed with that which it was nourished by.
This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.

    synonyms:cozy, homelike, homelycomfortablesnug, welcoming,

Now, O Lord GOD, You are God, and Your words are truth, and You have promised this good thing to Your servant. 29"Now therefore, may it please You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue forever before You. For You, O Lord GOD, have spoken; and with Your blessing may the house of Your servant be blessed forever."

By Robert Blankenship
The home in which I grew
Where I was taught to do that which I should
Was held together by love
And everything that's good

It's floors were supported strong
By tenderness and caring
And it's roof was held in place
By the gentle act of sharing

It's walls stood strong and firm
Never were they shaken
Strength is gained by what you give
Not by what you have taken

A home is so much more
Than wood and nails and stone
It is made of truth, love, caring and sharing
These things , they make a house a home


 Turn off the t.v. and put down the phone!

          How to make bread


God bless our home.

Pillars of My Faith

I am a convert to Catholicism and I love my faith. I do not wish to start a debate on Catholic practices, but only to share tools for strengthening faith.
