Happy March


I wanted to share a poem today about spring or the month of March. Instead I ran across these:


Love the Beautiful

Moses Mendelssohn


Love the beautiful,

Seek out the true,

Wish for the good,

And the best do.


The House Beautiful

-old inscription


The Crown of the house is Godliness,

The Beauty of the house is Order,

The Glory of the house is Hospitality,

The Blessing of the house is Contentment.

Hi Stacey
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really like the inscription about the house. That would be lovely framed and hanging on a wall in our home.
Hugs, Rhondi

Just a little something from Judy said...

The poem and the picture are the perfect combination to welcome March today. I would frame that picture and hang it in my home...I love it!! By the way, how was the chicken last evening? Just wondering. Happy Sunday!
