Dellfeld and Nünschweiler

All In The Family...



For my family members who read the blog, here is an interesting thing I came across:

Heraldry (coat of arms) for Dellfeld. In the comment it says that the white rose of Martin Luther symbolizes the "importance of Lutheran colonists for the development of the village." George and Elisabeth were Lutherans until they became Methodists after they settled at Gordon, Nebraska.

Heraldry (coat of arms) for Nünschweiler.

Mama said her grandmother told her that in the village (I am not sure which of the villages she meant) the Catholics and Lutherans shared the same church building.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
