To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Day Four~DPP

Gathering for worship
Getting together with friends for lunch. Taking Christmas photos. Laughing as children play. Getting ready for more friends. Celebrating as a new little one is brought into the covenant family. Food, conversation, fellowship.
Settling down. Lighting the candles. Reading the genealogy. Finding ourselves among His ancestors. Learning of our lineage...where we come from...who we are...His people...His descendants.
