Christmas Greetings..

For some unknown reason (me?) my scanner is not working so I will copy some of these words that seem so apt at this time. I wish anyone and all who come here now and then a blessed Christmas, Holiday Season...however you choose to celebrate. I fervently hope that each and all of you are surrounded by people you love, and people who love you.
May this coming year be filled with joy and when and if hard times come, as they do to all of us, may you be supported and held in comfort and grace.

AND WHEN WE GIVE EACH OTHER
CHRISTMAS GIFTS IN HIS NAME, LET
US REMEMBER THAT HE HAS GIVEN
US THE SUN AND THE MOON AND
THE STARS, AND THE EARTH WITH
ITS FORESTS AND MOUNTAINS AND
OCEANS-AND ALL THAT LIVES AND
MOVES UPON THEM. HE HAS GIVEN
US ALL GREEN THINGS AND EVERY-
THING THAT BLOSSOMS AND BEARS
FRUIT-AND ALL THAT WE QUARREL
ABOUT AND ALL THAT WE HAVE
MISUSED-AND TO SAVE US FROM
OUR OWN FOOLISHNESS, FROM ALL
.......HE GAVE US HIMSELF.

What we hope for, pray for, live for, comes as a gift.

Christmas Blessings.


Best
