Love and Happiness Surround You







 


And is it true?  And is it true?
This most tremendous tale of all,
Seen in a stained glass window's hue,
A baby in an ox's stall?
The Maker of the stars and sea
Become a Child of earth for me?

-John Betjeman
 


 


Have a beautiful holiday, all of you.  May the coming year be filled with love.

That single picture just gave me chills and brought tears to me eyes.

A most joyous and blessed Christmas to you and yours.

(Oh, I know a children's book you'll love. It's called "A Dozen Silk Diapers" and it's based on an Easter European folktale- basically, a baby spider falls into the manger trying to get a better look at the Baby- and Mary, instead of smashing him, picks him up and let's him sit on the edge to see. In return, the mommy spider and his brothers and sisters weave their silk into diapers for the Baby.)

...And the voice of the turtle was heard in the land.

(I know, they weren't talking about that kind of turtle, but it seemed so appropriate.) The turtle story is the only Christmasy thing I've allowed myself this year, since officially, it's cancelled here at TudorHouse, but you know what? I think I chose very wisely.

Tonight, I'll do just what I've been doing for many years: Wait for the stroke of midnight to hear the animals talk.

Bless you, and may the coming year be better for us all.

The Grace and Love of God, which Passes all understanding, embrace you and us all tonight.

Thank you for the story. Happy Christmas.
