With the shorter days and autumn leaves turning beautiful golds and reds, I’m loving anew my Homewood stove. I love seeing the children all gathering around it, jostling for the best place, and reading their books while I prepare dinner.
Last week I discovered this beautiful prayer and I’ve made it my special Homewood prayer of thanksgiving. I’ve written it on a piece of paper and stuck to the wall by the fire, but one of these days I’m going to write it out beautifully and frame it.
“How can our minds and bodies be Grateful enough that we have spent Here in this generous room, we three, This evening of content? Each one has walked through storm And fled the wolves along the road; But here the hearth is wide and warm, And for this shelter and this light Accept, O Lord, our thanks tonight.” (Sara Teasdale)
And I am thankful for every evening of content that we have spent in front of the wide and warm hearth of our Homewood. 🙂
