Recently, I came across this vintage photo card in my dad's old lockbox. Funny, how I have looked in that box many times over the years, but for the first time I really noticed this and the grungy green string tied at the top. Now I imagine this hanging in his childhood bedroom or on the wall of the Elling family kitchen.
As to the translation...the last part of the verse is easy, but I'm not at all certain about the first part. Could anyone translate for me?
