Quiet Christmas Poetry

Under “Book Offers” in the Fall 2015 issue of Time Of Singing, Lora Homan Zill, Editor, included a picture of our Christmas book and wrote: “Light and easy to hold, with large print, it is ideal for anyone battling or recovering from serious illness, or who needs a special word of encouragement over the holiday season.”

This is a photo by Karl from 2011.  The simple decoration is lovely on the old wood walls.  Our home began as a cottage in the 1940s.
