Merry Christmas!

Small baby...
 ...great love.

A light snow is falling as I write these words.  The turkey is in the oven. I am enjoying my first cup of morning coffee.  It is quiet and peaceful and I feel blessed.  All the packages are tucked under the tree awaiting my boisterous and energetic family's arrival in a few hours.  I'm smiling as I recall last night's church Christmas pageant.  Olivia (age 4) was an angel (actually, she he reminded me of one of the Herdman kids from The Best Christmas Pageant Ever!) and Dayton (5) was an innkeeper.  He managed to make everyone laugh after he said his one line.  One of the highlights of the season to me, is the candlelight singing after the children perform.  The church is darkened and one by one the candles are lit until the whole place is basked in the "Savior's light." 
    Happy Birthday, Jesus.   
Gloria in excelsis deo!
Christmas Blessings to you, my friends!


  1. Thank you for sharing a part of your family.
    Peace be with you and your family and Happy New Year.

  2. Happy Holidays dearest sweet Susan, all the best in the New Year xxx

  3. Good morning dearest Susan! I saw your second comment late last nighth and I wanted to thank you for taking the time to read my last post. What was missing however, was the special music I had to give it a fuller effect. I had a youtube video with a child singing O HOLY NIGHT....with a voice that is truly a gift from above.

    May we as educators be proud of what we do....teaching is more than instructing, isn't it?


  4. I have missed you soooo much!

    Your Christmas must of been magical!

    Hope you are well and that HIS PEACE is with you in 2013.What more could we ask for?!
    Hugs dear one.

  5. Happy New Year! May all your dreams come true...
