A CHRISTMAS FAIR
My friend Karen has hosted a Christmas fair. I decided to start this blog in response to Karen's invitation to participate. Karen has had a Christmas blog for a few years already. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to do my own special place for Christmas and this special holiday season. Take some time to look around. Get into the holiday spirit. Tell me about your favourite place online to prepare for Christmas. Watch for a give away to be announced in the next few days. Take your time. Grab a cup of your special Christmas tea or some apple cider and relax.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah for those who celebrate in that tradition.
words by which I am very inspired:
I SALUTE YOU! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much, that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet, within our reach, is joy. Take Joy.
And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you, with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and shadows flee away.
