The Christmas season can be one of the most wonderful times of the year. 

Here's the essence of Christmas on this blog post from our perspective, in words and pictures:

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."
-Norman Vincent Peale

"The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."
-Burton Hillis

"Visions of sugar plums danced in their heads."
-"The Night Before Christmas"
-Clement Clarke Moore

                                Talented Cousin Bruce's Christmas Decorations

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
-Hamilton Wright Mabie

"The message of Christmas is that the visible material world is bound to the invisible spiritual world."
-Author Unknown

"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."
-Charles Dickens

"May you have-
Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain
And drinks beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire."
-Traditional Celtic Blessing

Positive thought: May you have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
Thanks for visiting!  Until next Sunday, Becky
