Dear Lord, I ask one thing of thee, the gift of true simplicity. A cheery fire, a rocking chair, enough to eat, enough to wear. A little cottage built upon a spot that I can call my own. A garden and a shady tree, a dog to keep me company.
A pot that's big enough to hold, enough to fill another bowl. A welcome mat that's out to all, whenever neighbors come to call. A bed, a lamp, a book or two, an old friend and perhaps a new. And since all things are mine in thee, then this is quite enough for me."

  12. This brings to mind the Shaker hymn. "Tis a gift to be simple; 'tis a gift to be free..."
