The colorful lights from our Christmas tree


shine through our front window.........giving our home
a pretty Christmas card look..........
although there is no snow........it still looks nostalgic.
We, as probably all of you, are weathering extreme cold
days and nights. 
Wishing you all warmth and comfort as 
these hours fly by into a wonderful
Christmas day.

And, so, Christmas comes to bless us!
Comes to teach us how to find
The joy of giving happiness
And the joy of being kind.
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "There Will Always Be a Christmas," 1940s

Such a pretty picture...hope you're keeping warm! The bad weather will be here on Friday, I don't mind being cold, just hoping the electricity stays on. They're calling for 50mph winds, which always worries me. Stay warm, cozy, and safe...have a wonderful Christmas!
