“I believe that a godly home is a foretaste of heaven. Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.” --- Jani Ortlund

Life has loveliness to sell

Image may contain: one or more people, cloud, sky and outdoor

Life has loveliness to sell,
All beautiful and splendid things,
Blue waves whitened on a cliff,
Soaring fire that sways and sings,
And children's faces looking up,
Holding wonder like a cup.

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

Life has loveliness to sell,
Music like a curve of gold,
Scent of pine trees in the rain,
Eyes that love you, arms that hold,
And for your spirit's still delight,
Holy thoughts that star the night.

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

Spend all you have for loveliness,
Buy it and never count the cost;
For one white singing hour of peace
Count many a year of strife well lost,
And for a breath of ecstasy
Give all you have been, or could be.

Sara Teasdale

Wishing you moments of sheer loveliness and wonder throughout your day today!


  1. Ah!I am lost in the loveliness of your mesmerized words and images!!!
    You have a Beautiful Soul friend and this beauty shines through your magical way of expressions.
    Life has loveliness to sell and we can buy it by realization of having countless blessings and deep sense of gratitude

  2. Absolutely precious Trish... :0) mari
