Just picked a random vintage card to post, as I longed for something pretty and as I browsed my vintage clip art folder this caught my eye. These primroses are just right for spring and I just know its someone's birthday out there in cyberland! So Happy Birthday to you whoever you are, you are special to God and he longs to save you!
"I Have Found Such Joy"
I have found such joy in simple things;
A plain clean room, a nut-brown loaf of bread,
A cup of milk, a kettle as it sings,
The shelter of a roof above my head,
And in a leaf laced square along the floor,
Where yellow sunlight glimmers through a door.
I have found such joy in things that fill
My quiet days; a curtain's blowing grace,
A potted plant upon my window sill,
A rose, fresh-cut and placed within a vase;
A table cleared, a lamp beside a chair,
And books I long have loved beside me there.
Oh, I have found such joys I wish I might
Tell every woman who goes seeking far
For some elusive, feverish delight,
That very close to home the great joys are;
The elemental things-old as the race,
Yet never, through the ages, commonplace.
