A Small Cottage Fair









In my dream, there's a place-





It is a small cottage fair,
With a white picket fence
And contentment lives there.

It is peaceful and calm,
Anytime night or day,
At my small cottage home
In my dream faraway.

Oh, the beauty within
Sings a song of sweet grace,
So amazingly rare
At my small cottage place.









I can kneel down and pray
And God hears every word;
Each request that I make
I can feel that He heard.

A contentment and peace
Is all that I require;
At my small cottage home
Heaven is my desire
Katherine Smith Matheney

Welcome Home,
Mimi
