New Year Greetings!
William Henry Channing was a preacher, editor, and Chaplain of the US House of Representative from 1863-64. While I don’t typically make New Year resolutions, I am going to let his wise words be my guide in the new year…
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.
William Henry Channing (1810-1884), “Symphony”

"Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair."
