Glad Tidings of Great Joy!

20211224_083527

Overnight a quick clipper system dropped a

soft, white blanket to cover the earth.

Our three Swiss Stone Pine Trees stand:

Melchior, Casper, Balthazar.  Snow-covered.

The lines of Christmas songs and hymns

swirl in my head today as I gaze at

Nature’s beauty.  The mood is set.

Stille Nacht and O Holy Night.

My husband sings the solo later.

I sing the German version of Silent Night.

Befitting the season.  I wish one and all,

Fröhliche Weihnachten/Merry Christmas!

The neighborhood is abuzz with children’s

giggle as they slide down the driveways

enjoying the snow.  The dogs play in it

as well.  Good Will to all.  Blessings.
