The decorations are down and put away.   The gifts are unwrapped.   Those that did not fit have been returned.  

There are only a few remnants of Christmas that remain.

A blue poinsettia...

some leftover cookies....

 and best of all...

 loving memories that will live on until Christmas comes again.

Hope all of you have some remnants to enjoy as well.   God Bless and Have a Very Happy New Year!

"The first Noel the angel did say was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay; in fields where they lay keeping their sheep, on a cold winter's night that was so deep.    Noel,   Noel,  Noel,
Born is the King of Israel."

Since this is my last post before the 25th I  am wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas.  May it be filled with the love and joy of the season.    God Bless!

"Oh the weather outside is frightful...

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we've no place to go,

Let it snow!   Let it snow!   Let it snow!"

 Hope everyone is safe and warm tonight.

God bless!

Keeping busy

I should be keeping busy with Christmas only fourteen days away.   The shopping is not finished...nor the baking.   Cards still need to be mailed.    Will it get done?   I hope so.   If not Christmas still arrives on the 25th.

In the meantime I will make a hot cup of cocoa and take a few minutes to enjoy some lights.   Why don't you join me.

Thanks for stopping by.   I always love it when you visit.

Birds of the Air

"Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them."   Matt: 6:26

Junco or Snow Bird
When the snow covers the ground they come...

They know there will be food here...

Tufted Titmouse
 No reason to worry...

          there is plenty for everyone.

Hope you will take a moment to look up and enjoy the birds of the air.   Have a wonderful week!

Season's Greetings

It is the time of the year to start to receive those lovely season's greetings.   Already the mail has brought sweet sentiments.  There is one that has come all the way from England.  What a pleasure it is to open the mail box and find notes from folks near and far.

 Some of the cards will be handmade... others will hold notes and letters...and a few will have photos enclosed.    All our special.
 At this busy time of the year it is nice to know that someone is thinking of you and takes time to tell you so.

Hope everyone will find their mail box filled with Season's Greetings today.  God Bless!
