Welcome to Pink Saturday!

Good morning girls. Welcome to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly, at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog/. Be sure to visit Beverly's beautiful blog to see a complete list of all the participants in today's Pink Saturday.
While searching for pink this week I remembered this wonderful book. We've had it for many years now and each Christmas I take it out to read and re-read the beautiful poems. They are all so touching and so moving. I chose to put this stately deer and some vintage mercury ornaments around it. And adding another vintage touch is this beautiful antique hat and stand.
This beautiful antique book titled A Christmas Prayer has a copy right of 1915. It has a few frayed edges and water spots. We believe this belonged to my beloved Mother In Law. The poems are absolutely beautiful.



From the book:
Dear Lord, these friends of mine,
where they may stray,
Wilt Thou bear each Thy blessing
on this day?
For now the season comes when
Yule" logs burn,
When hearts grow kind, and sweeter
dreamings turn
Unto these olden, golden friends.
I pray
Thy benediction on them all this
day,
And let Thy light of love and mercy
shine,
Dear Lord, this day, on all these
friends of mine!
