The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up 107

Home is Where There is One to Love Us

Home's not merely four square walls,
Though with pictures hung and gilded:
Home is where affection calls,
Filled with shrines the hearth hath builded!

Home! go watch the faithful dove,
Sailing 'neath the heaven above us;
Home is where there's one to love!
Home is where there's one to love us!

Home's not merely roof and room,
It needs something to endear it;
Home is where the heart can bloom,
Where there's some kind lip to cheer it!

What is home with none to meet,
None to welcome, none to greet us?
Home is sweet, and only sweet,
When there's one we love to meet us!

~ Charles Swain

No-Bake Cupcakes by Fruitful Vine ~ If you are wondering why this is in the homesteading section, it is because it is always helpful to know various skills to keep life moving during various situations. Not having a working oven for some reason or other, you will be able to bake a cupcake or muffin with just a campfire (if need be) and a cooking pot. I love these kinds of alternative recipes!
