Merry Christmas



And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased!"


My mother's favorite carol was In the Bleak Midwinter. You can find the first verse at Bernita's, but mom was fond of the last one.

What can I give him,
poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd,
I would bring a lamb;
if I were a Wise Man,
I would do my part;
yet what I can I give him:
give my heart.


Christina G. Rossetti

Merry Christmas.

Our Christmas is now pretty much over. We had the big turkey dinner, went to church and opened gifts. The theme for this year for the church program was birthday cebebration: Image having a birthday and a birthday party but you were not invited.

Merry Christmas and that little poem is beautiful!

And I hope your birthday was special separate from the holiday.
Now that I know about it, I realize your first name is extra special, just like you are.
