The Four Winds

WIND of the North,
Wind of the Norland snows,
Wind of the winnowed skies, and sharp, clear stars,—
Blow cold and keen across the naked hills,
And crisp the lowland pools with crystal films,
And blur the casement squares with glittering ice,
But go not near my love.

Wind of the West,
Wind of the few, far clouds,
Wind of the gold and crimson sunset lands,-
Blow fresh and pure across the peaks and plains,
And broaden the blue spaces of the heavens,
And sway the grasses and the mountain pines,
But let my dear one rest.

Wind of the East,
Wind of the sunrise seas,
Wind of the clinging mists and gray, harsh rains,—
Blow moist and chill across the wastes of brine,
And shut the sun out, and the moon and stars,
And lash the boughs against the dripping eaves,
Yet keep thou from my love.

But thou, sweet wind!
Wind of the fragrant South,
Wind from the bowers of jasmine and of rose,—
Over magnolia blooms and lilied lakes
And flowering forests come with dewy wings,
And stir the petals at her feet, and kiss
The low mound where she lies.

The Gift

JayJacy.com
What a lovely Christmas not only with the incredibly beautiful Christmas decor everywhere present but in the festivities, food, music, fellowship and spiritual blessings.  Add to these, the incredible weather of 60-70 degree days which makes ease of travel.  We often measure our now and past Christmas and holidays by the gifts we receive under the tree but Christmas is and always has been about the gift of God of the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior.  We pray your celebration was all that you hoped for and that the New Year will bring enumerable blessings to you and yours.   Happy Post-Christmas, pre-New Year Sunday!

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”-Romans 6:23

For the Love of Portsmouth

A “Room With A View” has nothing on this breathtaking waterfront view in Portsmouth. At 16 stories high this is pure bliss, the combination which makes a beautiful waterscape of color and visuals that make you want to be here. A day and night of photography of the waterfront from every height and angle and its plethora of subjects made for a beautiful and successful photo shoot. There is much history here and we are venturing out to comb the city and document in images its rich history.

Among the long, black rafters
The wavering shadows lay,
And the current that came from the ocean
Seemed to lift and bear them away;

As, sweeping and eddying through them,
Rose the belated tide,
And, streaming into the moonlight,
The seaweed floated wide.

And like those waters rushing
Among the wooden piers,
A flood of thoughts came o’er me
That filled my eyes with tears.

How often, oh how often,
In the days that had gone by,
I had stood on that bridge at midnight
And gazed on that wave and sky!

How often, oh how often,
I had wished that the ebbing tide
Would bear me away on its bosom
O’er the ocean wild and wide!
(Excerpts “The Bridge” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
