Happy Christmas!

Folks may have different reasons why they celebrate Christmas
and each reason can add special layers of meaning and joy to our lives...

I, too, have lots of reasons why I love Christmas
and why it's my favorite time of year, but
here's my very first reason for celebrating....

"Love came down at Christmas...
The star and angels gave the sign."
~ Christina Rosetti

The Light came
to shine hope and love in a dark world
which, for me, makes everything else worth living.

In which ever way you celebrate and for whatever reason
I want to WISH you, dear friends,
the happiest and most deeply satisfying Christmas.

May you catch glimpses of heaven in unexpected places!

Hugs to each of you.....

  10. Brenda, I think that's a beautiful sentiment - to look for glimpses in heaven in unexpected places. I think that will be my challenge for 2012. Thanks! New Year's Blessings!
