"Hast given us joys, tender and true"

For thou who knowest, Lord, how soon
Our weak heart clings,
Hast given us joys, tender and true,
Yet all with wings;
So that we see gleaming on high
Diviner things.

-Adelaide Proctor

  1. Loved your list! What is a date in a bag? Sounds like fun! Your home has the most beautiful colour.

  2. Blessings as your school year commences.

  3. Great list! I loved the bit of poetry you posted at the beginning, too.
