The Happiest Home

I found this lovely and heart warming poem in one of my old books called  Golden Thoughts Of Mother, Home, Heaven.  I thought you all might like to read it, I pray you all are blessed by it.

The Happiest Home

Where is the happiest home on earth?
Tis not mid scenes of noisy mirth;
But where God's favor, sought aright,
Fill every breast with joy and light.

The richest home? It is not found
Where wealth and splendor most abound;
But wheresoe'er, in hall or cot,
Men live contented with their lot.

The fairest home? It is not placed
In scenes with outward beauty graced;
But where kind words and smiles impart
A constant sunshine to the heart.

On such a home of peace and love
God showers his blessing from above;
And angels, watching o'er it, cry,
"Lo! this is like our home on high!"

Here is the places I have linked this post to! Come by and join the fun.

  6. Have enjoyed looking around. You have a lovely blog. It has taken me awhile to get myself signed in and then to "share a thought" is new to me. Little things can stump me sometimes. Oh I really liked the post on old cookbooks. I have made a few vintage recipes, including Mrs. Lincoln's favorite cake. That one was a big disappointment, though baking it satisfied my curiosity.
