Male Northern Cardinal in my front yard You cannot give anything more important than the Love reflected in your own life. That is the one true universal language, which allows us to speak Chinese or the dialects of India. For if, one day, you go to those places, the silent eloquence of Love will mean that you will be understood by everyone.
— Henry Drummond I found this quote by Henry Drummond this morning. If you haven't read his work, it is pretty amazing!
"We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature."
Last summer I was able to explore the lovely town of Lewisburg, West Virginia.
It is a town full of history.
This is The Old Stone Church
Wikipedia tells me:
The Old Stone Church was built in 1796, and is a two story, rectangular limestone building. An addition was built in 1830, making the building 75 feet by 44 feet in size. It features an open cupola belfry. During the American Civil War it served as a hospital for both Union and Confederate forces.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The related Stone Manse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004
