Duty


The sweetest lives are those to duty wed, Whose deeds, both great and small, Are close-knit strands of an unbroken thread where love ennobles all. The world may sound no trumpets, ring no bells, The Book of Life the shining record tells. From an old calendar
The victories won by prayer,
By prayer must still be held;
The foe retreats...but only when
By prayer he is compelled.
From Steams In The Desert
By Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

Yes, all ennobled by love is the key! Beautiful post, Patsy. I looked for it this morning.

Another rainy day but the forecast promises sunshine tomorrow.

Hope your Sunday has been nice.
