Winter is Past

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!
