This is a photo of my Grandpa (mom's Dad) taken when he was in the army. It's one of my favorite pics of him. The poem was one of his favorites and reads:
"You don't have to tell how you live each day,
You don't have to say if you work or play,
A tried, true barometer serves in the place
However you live, it will show in your face.
The false, the deceit you bear in your heart
Will not stay inside, where it first got a start,
For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace,
What you wear in your heart you wear in your face.
If your life is unselfish, if for others you live
For not what you get, but for how much you can give, If you live close to God, in His infinite grace,
You don't have to tell it, it shows in your face."
All pp's I used are from Graphic 45's Time Nouveau line. Corner stamps are by Maya Road. The journaling tag behind the photo is by 7 Gypsies and reads: "The Story Of: Edward Pierce Perdue This photo of my Grandpa was taken after he joined the army & went to Germany It was 1944- he was 24 yrs. old & had been in Germany for three yrs. He loved to read poetry & this poem was one of his favorites." Wish I could've journaled more but the tag was really small. Thanks so much for looking!!!
