Books from Germany

I have a correspondence with a family in Germany who are from Columbia Missouri and he sent me these old books he found in an old Church who was selling all there  old , I mean old library books.

The first one is a small song book which I love the cover it is a hard slick  shinny  black leather  anyway.  I love old books was was thrilled to get them. It is dated 1915 Lobsinget dem Herrim
translated to , sing praise to the mistress




Also today I wanted to let you know the address where I got my animal calendar I had several emails asking

I am trying to get a few things out for the  Valentine posts we all do , I love making cards and have boxes I mean boxes of card stock and ideas it's just getting it done

This is just a little cluttered cabinet I got out of the storage room to start my Valentine juices flowing

  7. Oh, that is interesting to read an old book:)

  9. Oh what wonderful old books, and how nice of your friend to get them for you. They are beautiful. I like your cabinet with the Valentine display. laurie

  10. Hi Janice,

    oh, I see. It is a book with church songs. May I tell you that the title is different. The point don't belong to the word "Herrn". It is just a adornement of the line. So the title is "Lobsinget dem Herrn", which means praise the master (god)!

    The poem inside was written by the Godmother of the person, who owned this book. See, here the children get their 1. Holy Communion on the sunday after Easter. And that is the date, they get their first song book. So I guess the owner has his communion at 11. March 1915.

    The Words are: "Habe Gott vor Augen und im Herzen, Von deiner Patin Marie Stahl"


    "Keep God in sight and in your heart, From your Godmother Marie Stahl."

    I like that you have this song book. I own also several old books. I cannot through them away. I wish you the blessing of God for treasuring this.

    Best greetings, Johanna
