25 days until Christmas..

angels watching over us

Waiting in anticipation
for the Light of the world to come..
giving warmth and joy..
Peace and love..
melting coldness of hearts..
igniting the embers deep within
uniting the world once again
in brotherhood..

Giving Thanks

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. ~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby

    I've noticed something, Hope; I feel a sense of anticipation this Christmas. I haven't a dime to spend, the seasonable cold has barely begun, and I feel more restless than I have in years. This feels like the prelude to something...

    ...something wonderful.

    Thank you for the reminder.

    And thank you for sharing your beautiful photographs; they never fail to make me feel all warm and smiley inside.

    Much love to you, sis.

  3. I should really say, "Good Morning, Hope", as it's 4 in the morning here and I am finally going to try and sleep in just a moment. But first I wanted to tell you how lovely your post is today. This is the one season where, as you said, the world comes together in love. I especially loved the quote from the child about stopping to listen.
    So glad you still have Jack Johnson playing. I have become such a fan because of you :D
