Little Gems

"If you wanted to gather up all tender memories, all lights and shadows of the heart, all banquetings and reunions, all filial, fraternal, paternal, conjugal affections, and had only just four letters to spell out all height and depth, and length and breadth, and magnitude and eternity of meaning, you would write it all out with the four leters that spell HOME."

"But home,- that word quickens every pulse, warms the heart, stirs the soul to its depths, makes age feel young again...."

Here are father, mother, child, brother, sister, companions, all the heart loves, all that makes earth lovely, all that enriches the mind with faith and the soul with hope."

~The Golden Gems of Life
By S. C. FERGUSON AND E. A. ALLEN
First published in the late 1800's

These beautiful and encouraging words are from this precious book. If you own an original copy of this book you are truly blessed. If I ever come across a copy, I would hope to be able to buy it. What a treasure it would be.

I hope and pray that you all are having a blessed week. In God's Love, Tami
