"The infant's birth, except for the modest surroundings, was really no different from that of all who have abandoned the womb and entered earth's dull light. Except of course, that a giant of an angel stood just outside the stable door, poised to do battle with anything created that might have menaced this incarnation of the God of all creation."
The Birth, The Chronicles of the Door by Gene Edwards
Happy December to you all! Time has flown by so fast. It feels like I was just out in the gardens weeding and admiring.......
Our computer is on the fritz and being looked at by our son-in-law, Dave. We have his Mac laptop. For the life of me, I haven't been able to download pics. I did manage to snag this one from Facebook. It cracked me up because I'm a cat lover and it's so true!
The first year we had Jake and Idgie, we took the tree down after a week because they had wreaked havoc and broke so many ornaments that we surrendered.
How many of you are in the Holiday groove? By that, I mean, are you enjoying the preparation for and participating in all that this Season brings?
Here in the US, the real reason for the celebration of Christmas is so far buried under media hype and the pressure to buy that it's easy to forget the Reason behind the Season! I'm working on staying focused.......
Whatever Holiday you celebrate, here's to a joyous Celebration with your loved ones!
Happy Gardening, Flower Freak
Today I'm grateful for all the wonderful women I have in my life! There's nothing like true friends whether we share the same DNA or not.....
