Recently I have been reading The Mitford Series by Jan Karon. I know what most of you are thinking- Aren’t those books a little old and perhaps geared toward a slightly older crowd? And I would have to agree with you based on the fact that when I got the first one from the library I accidentally ordered the LARGE PRINT edition.
However, I would argue that Jan Karon is a great writer and her books are very relaxing to me. I love anything that centers around small town life (I’m thinking of you, Stars Hollow!) and these books boast so much small town charm I just feel so peaceful when I read them.
Ok, mini-book report aside, I wanted to share with you a new printable today which actually was inspired by the Mitford books. You see, in the first book Miss Sadie shares with Father Tim her ill-fated love story.
Miss Sadie was in love with a man her father did not like and refused to allow her to marry. I’m sorry but I cannot for the life of me remember his name. Anyway, Miss Sadie’s young man kept loving her and held out hope that they would eventually marry- so much so that when he built his home he named the home “Winterpast”, which he took from Song of Songs chapter 2 verse 11. The name was meant to refer to their finally being together as being like the coming of Spring after winter.
I loved that story (my retelling doesn’t do it justice) and the verse and really wanted to use it for something so I came up with this printable featuring some of the verses from Song of Songs chapter 2. As it is especially appropriate to this time of year I wanted to share it with you and I hope that you enjoy it!
