We had a lovely candlelight service at our church last night, and as always I was reminded of the "reason for the season" with the text our pastor used:
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ISAIAH 9:6
And for a little Christmas fun, greetings from some of the friends of the blog:
Here are Christmas greetings from two of our favorite models, Betty Malone's charming grandchildren...
And last but never least, it is fitting that the redoubtable Harry Gareth Edward Spalding should have a word (with a bit of help from mum, Valerie Jagiello):
Charles Dickens said, “It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!”
