Merry Christmas

With festivities in full swing I just dropped in to share a few things I've been loving lately.

hints of Christmas everywhere,

This cozy room to sit in after a cold rainy day when the house is still for a few short moments after bedtime,

The adorable way she says Merry Christmas,and her insistence on this hat that is way too big for her,

His intentness when I read him The Jesus Storybook Bible even when it makes me cry,

The hands that carved this bird,

and the hands that fixed its broken wing,

and my constant little songbird.
May you be surrounded with warmth, peace and love this season. To you and yours, Merry Christmas!

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
