Little house in Mooresville, Alabama

"What is Christmas?

It is tenderness for the past,
courage for the present,
hope for the future.
It is a fervent wish that
every cup may overflow
with blessings rich and eternal,
and that every path may lead
to peace."

~ Agnes M. Pahro


Peace sounds good about now. "Blessings rich and eternal" perfectly phrases my thoughts today about Christmas. If we could all just sit still that day in quiet repose and reflect on our blessings, count each one, write them down on a piece of paper and recite them to our loved ones - I believe our individual worlds would shift and each of us would feel rich and loved and blessed beyond all imaginings.

How I adore these pictures of 'simple' Christmas decor - a wreath on a door...greenery and bows on a road sign - you have such an 'eye' for profound yet simple beauty! I enjoyed your Dave Matthews song while I visited - Have a beautiful Christmas filled with blessings!

Lovely photo and beautiful wise words. The simplicity of both are powerful statements.

Cheers!

"reflect on our blessings, count each one, write them down on a piece of paper and recite them to our loved ones" - I am asking my family to do this BEFORE we open any presents. How mice would that be!
