                                       Merry Christmas

Christmas wishes tried and true I'm sending now, just for you...a little love, a little cheer, and wishes for a great New Year!  Hope Santa brings you gifts galore with more surprises still in store.   May all your Christmas dreams come true and may God's blessings be yours too.   ~Author Unknown~

Christmas is a holiday for friends, however they may be, or not, related.  Remember that the three wise kings were strangers in search of one remote, uncanny dream.  So may we all be for more than we seem, together bound for dark and haunting changes, more lovely for the loves we have created along the lonely paths from means to end, stumbling towards the star of Bethlehem.  ~Nicholas Gordon~

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all.

"On the first day of winter, the earth awakens to the cold touch of itself.  Snow knows no other recourse except this falling, this sudden letting go over the small gnomed bushes, all the emptying trees. Snow puts beauty back into the withered and malnourished, into the death wish of nature and the deliberate way winter insists on nothing less then deference.   Waiting all its life, snow says, "Let me cover you."  ~Laura Lush~

"December finds himself  again a  child even as he under goes his age.   Cold and early darkness now descends, embracing sanctuaries of delights.   More and more he stares into the night, becoming less and less concerned with ends, emblem of the innocent as sage restored to wonder by what he must yield.     ~Nicholas Gordon~

Sweet December

Sweet December my light, my ember the end of September, October, November.   ~Author Unknown~

"I heard a bird sing in the dark of December a magical thing and sweet to remember.
"We are nearer to spring than we  were in September.  I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.'
~Oliver Herford~

Have a wonderful month of December my friends.   Madeline
