"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
Lucy Maud Montgomery

And the Heavens and the Angels sang...



 "for unto you is born this day...a Saviour, who is Christ our Lord."
Luke 2:11



Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever."

~ Bess Streeter Aldrich (1881-1954), American author, 'Song of Years'.


Blessings to you my friends who celebrate the Birth of our Lord.  May he hold you in his hands, be gentle with your heart, and strengthen and comfort you with his Grace.  Remember, no matter how difficult the times...that you are never alone.   Merry Christmas.  And to those of you who do not celebrate please take my friendship and thanks as my gift to you....

    Hi Friend. May you reap many blessings in this coming New Year.
    I am sad to say the chocolate fudge was gone long ago : ( My oldest daughter and I acted like it was water and ate deeply : )
    It was so delicious.
    Have a wonderful day
    peace & love
