A lovely morning at home with our grown children.

Then a short trip to see nephews & their families.

There, beautiful decorations, children galore & lots of of Christmas joy.

What a great day.

Prayers for Newtown, CT

Prayers for Newtown, CT

Beyond belief, our hearts break.
There are no words to say how
angry, sad, repulsed we are
to learn of another tragic school massacre.

This time, the youngest children suffered
— so did their teachers and dedicated adults
who wanted to protect against bullets and rage.

We lift our prayers — what else is there to do in this moment?

Lord of all, guide those who will respond
to this tragedy. Protect all children around
the world — allow them to learn and grow
without the threat of violence. And most of
all, bind us together in compassion.

May the Spirit of Love overcome the
forces of Evil everywhere.

Dove of Peace

Beautiful dove of peace to some.

To me, a reminder of my mother, gone twenty years.

The hostess, the warm heart of the family,

Who always adorned our Christmas Tree with birds.

Merry Christmas, Mom.

Home for the Holidays…..

Being invited into friends’ homes is such a blessing.

Hospitality means so much more than gifts, especially when people are feeling lonely or have had major changes in their lives.
Last night, my holiday celebration began with two small gatherings in friends’ homes, and it was lovely.  A relaxed time together with friends, no pressure to impress one another, just hanging out & enjoying good food & beverages, conversation, music, and some dancing.

The light and warmth of love

surrounded our gatherings.

May you have many blessings this holiday season as well.

A Simple Prayer for All of Us

One last post from the Thanksgiving Tree,

before we move full swing into the

end of year holiday celebrations……

a loving expression from a recent

former international refugee,

now proud U.S. citizen.

 

 

May we all be blessed with

peace, health & abundant love

in the the coming year.
