The Promise

By Grandma

Every morning weather permitting
I sit and gaze at Lydia's Promise
you'll not find her in history books
for Lydia was but a wife and mother
her love of life and all things living
she taught to her children, all four
but her greatest love
the love of God
was seen and heard in all she did
Lydia is gone but her passion lives on
as her grandchildren play neath the sign
the sign my son and her daughter built
and placed so lovingly for all to see
the vow made to teach God's love
needs not a sign but a promise.

Home is the nicest word there is. Laura Ingalls Wilder
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. Vincent Van Gogh
