Learn to like reading, conversation, music.

Learn to like plain food, plain service, plain cooking.

Learn to like people, even those who may be very different from you.

Learn to shelter your family with love, comfort, and peace.

Learn to hold heaven near and dear.

Learn to love God, for He surely loves you.

    Lovely! And actually I find that I don’t need to learn to love most of those things – I already do! The simple life is good!

  2. Just Julie says:

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Helen. I think that’s why I was so drawn to this quote. I need to learn a couple of them, though. xxoo

  3. Shari C. says:

    Don’t need to learn to love your blog… I just do 🙂
