    While cleaning out my Mother-in-laws house I found a wooden wall placket that is in German and it reads:

    Ein Liebes Wort am frühen Morgen erfreut das herz den ganzen tag

    Would anyone happen to know what this says? Thanks in advance.

    Well, per Google. A bit stilted but you get the idea:

    A word love in the early morning, the happy heart the whole day

    I am e-mailing this verse to my neighbor, he is German.
    As soon as I get an answer, I'll get back to you.

    As a retired German teacher, a more accurate translation would be: A loving word in the early morning will give joy to the heart the entire day.

    A good word in the morning gives joy to the heart all day.

    I love this verse. A good way to begin each day.
