A Garland of Praise

5026ae71d931c65c3620f02351e6ab01A wreathed garland of deserved praise,/Of praise deserved,/unto thee I give,/I give to thee, who knowest all my wayes,/My crooked winding wayes, wherein I live…                          George Herbert-poet

The name of my first novel, Greening of a Heart, was derived from a George Herbert poem. I continue to be drawn to his poetry. Here at Christmas time, these few lines called to me. I hope you will be touched by them too.

Wishing you and yours a blessed and merry Christmas!
