Ozzy's Wise & Wonderful Soap Set

Regular price $ 49.99

This soap set is offered for a limited time (with limited quantities) in order to help my sister pay a burdensome vet bill after she suddenly lost her beloved bulldog Ozzy this morning, Saturday, March 30th. We all love our animals in this family and we grieve when they pass. She isn't asking, but I want to help at least take this part of her heartache away, and I have soap to sell, so let's do this. 

And like most things I do, this soap also comes with a story...

My mom once gave a copy of the hymn All Things Bright and Beautiful with a line I always remembered, and subsequently made a soap about --- All Things Wise & Wonderful -- to our treasured Veterinarian of many years, and it hung on the wall in her office. We value the animals in our lives for the pure, unblemished and beautiful souls that they are, and we do suffer when they are gone. My mom always said that when you open yourself to love an animal, you assume the risk of having your heart ripped out.

I have always loved this poem, partly due to the reference to animals for us and partly because the literature teacher in me liked the poetry in it with inspiration drawn from  Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. At least now I can put the last of its namesake soap to good use. 

All Things Bright and Beautiful...

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.Refrain

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
