Merry Christmas!


Mr. T and I would like to wish all of our friends a very Merry Christmas!  

 Our day started off with our usual quiet times and then a very simple breakfast of cheesy scrambled eggs and wonderful rye bread from our neighbor Walter (his traditional gift to us) and clementines.

Mr. T is currently at his usual Saturday morning flag wave.  I have a couple more small gifts to wrap and then need to put together a salad and a cookie and fudge tray to take to our daughter's where we will be for dinner and the afternoon.  During that time we will likely Skype or FaceTime with our Nevada daughter and her family.

I can't think of a nicer way to extend our Christmas wish to you than to share this beautiful poem by the beloved writer Edgar Guest:

God bless you all
This Christmas Day;
May Bethlehem's star
Still light the way,
And guide thee to
The perfect peace
When every fear
And doubt shall cease,
And may thy home
Such glory know
As did the stable
Long ago.

Edgar A. Guest

May you enjoy a blessed Christmas day and week and a very happy, healthy 2022!


  1. Beautiful! Thank you for the Christmas wishes both real and virtual. Hope your day visiting with your family here and there was fabulous. Mine was.

  2. Thank you, Sandy! It looked as if you had wonderful celebrations also.

  3. You are welcome, Vee! Just put that together in my mind ... Christmas wishes both real and virtual. Our Christmas card must have arrived, then!

    Yes, we did have a wonderful day. Just felt like a very happy, peaceful day that we enjoyed so very much. Then on Sunday we had a most worshipful, beautiful Christmas communion service that was such a blessing!
