Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Last Installment: Earth's Greatest Day

 

Last Sunday was almost as warm and sunny as summer, but this week we're back to cold rain and heavy jackets. Ah, well!  At least things are greening up and, in the flowerbeds and my private nook in the woods, forgotten treasures are daily reappearing to remind me of flowers soon to come--grape hyacinths, columbines, bluebells, and peonies. 

This afternoon I spent three pleasant hours measuring, cutting, and pinning strips of fabric for the wedding bag order I've undertaken, while re-watching the first season of Call the Midwife. It was most enjoyable--quiet, uninterrupted, peaceful. I've been enjoying this series very much, and my daughter has been urging me to read the book. Or was it a book series? Anyway, she highly recommends it, and I am going to track it down eventually.

Well, it's nearly 7 p.m., so I'd better do as I promised and post the final chapter and epilogue of Earth's Greatest Day. I apologize in advance for the state of the epilogue, which has been partly torn away. I hope you've found it worthwhile.
