All Old-fashioned All the Time


I love old fashioned things - song, houses, books, poems, clothing, furniture, stories, movies, towns, architecture. Even things that seem old-fashioned like absolute truth, morals, virtues, patriotism and the Bible.
I'm so excited to have this blog now where I can express my old-fashioned side. I'm dedicating this blog to everything old-fashioned!

The above painting reminds me of an old hymn 'Let All Things Now Living':
    Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving
To God the creator triumphantly raise.
Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,
Who still guides us on to the end of our days.
God's banners are o'er us, His light goes before us,
A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.
Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished
As forward we travel from light into light.

His law he enforces, the stars in their courses
And sun in its orbit obediently shine;
The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,
The deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.
We too should be voicing our love and rejoicing;
With glad adoration a Song let us raise
Till all things now living unite in thanksgiving:
"To God in the highest, Hosanna and praise!"
