One of My Favorites

The Family Castle by Nancy Rakovsky

Our castle stands atop the hills, and offers strength of spirit. Place your hand little one unto mine, and I shall lead you to it.

The family castle is now your home, the stones grow ever stronger. For the castle's built on love and hope, alone you are no longer.

Behind these walls that rise up high, lies a garden lush and green. It's offerings bountiful as the sea, and beauty yet unseen.

Drink the waters that beckon you near, they'll fill your heart with hope. Feast on the knowledge offered here, for that will help you cope.

Our fires will fill your soul with warmth, to cast off the chill outside. Yet stay not here within these walls, they were not built to hide.

Swing wide the gates so you can see, the world lie at your feet. For without what hides beyond, the castle's incomplete.

Mount our stallion strong and true, for he shall be your guide. His legs have carried those of us, who've ventured far outside.

Fear not what you do not yet know, lead on and find your star. Fill your pack with experience, that you shall gain afar.

The good times will outnumber bad, though sometimes you shall fall. It's that time that you should seek, the strength of the castle wall.

For no matter the path you choose to take, no matter the strength of tides. You need only to look inside your heart, for that's where the castle resides.

Our "Family Castle"

Have a beautiful and very restful Sunday. Blessings, Tami

  1. How wonderful to see your lovely, cosy home. Visiting you, Rhonda Jean, and little jenny wren, is just like being there with you, in your home. I am so blessed by **every single** visit, more than you could know, even though things have been so busy that time hasn't allowed for me to say so each time I've come by. Thanks for being my friend, Tami.
    Much love, Jewels
