A Simple Little House

A Simple Little House
I like a simple little house
With flowers by the door,
An ample larder for my needs
And not much more in store.
I like a window toward the sun
And doors that open wide
The trickle of a bath for birds
With feathered friends beside.
I like a tidy nook inside
Where my books and slippers lie,
A cup for tea, a magazine,
A warming hearth nearby.
I like some trinkets on the sills,
White ruffles at the panes,
The comfort of a sturdy roof
To shelter me from rains.
I like the cozy ambiance,
A place of sweet retreat,
Where life unfolds along the way
And each new day's a treat!

Just a note-we finally signed the building contract to start our house. It's been years and years in the making. Hopefully a year from now we'll be in our dream home-Mamre:

"For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto The Lord." (Genesis 13:15-18 KJV)

God is so good!
