Up Life’s Hill with my my little Bundle

Up Life’s Hill with my my little Bundle
If I prove it steep —
If a Discouragement withhold me —
If my newest step

Older feel than the Hope that prompted —
Spotless be from blame
Heart that proposed as Heart that accepted
Homelessness, for Home —

  1. Meredith says:

    Spotless from blame is the Heart that proposed she not make this world her home, that she follow Him to her home… up the steep hill, up. Discouragement comes from the weight(s) we carry, making our step heavy, causing us to forget the light and joy and weightlessness that was the first grasping of Hope of Heaven.
