Found It! and a Spring Poem

Well can you believe that the card reader was actually where it was supposed to be? Who would have thought to look there. LOL! I have no idea how I over looked it, but it is found and I am happy!

This past Friday I went to an estate sale during lunch and of course bought things I didn't need but they had such great things at the sale and mostly at a very fair price.

One of the things I bought was a little book called Lesson Stories for Primary and Beginners Scholars. If was printed in 1929 and has some of the sweetest stories and poems that are all religion based.
I really like one of the poems, it is so fitting for this time of year.

In the little garden
seeds begin to grow.
Upward shoot the green leaves,
Down the rootlets go.
Buds and blossoms follow
making Earth so gay.
God who made them, loves them,
Cares for them always.-

In the clear cool water

little fishes swim

darting now in sunshine,

Now in shadows dim.

Under rocks their hiding,

merrily at play.

God who made them loves them,

Cares for them always.

Isn't that a pretty poem? It is by Mrs. S. A. Gamble. I also got some really cool greeting cards from the 1940's and 50's! I am going to scan some of those for cards and tags

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!



p.s. does anyone know why part of this poem is single space and part is double? Blogger wouldn't let me fix it!

Sounds like more great finds.

p.s. I don't know if there's any explaination . . . . I think sometimes Blogger just has PMS *s*
