Merry Christmas

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

—–EDITH WHARTON

May you spread light to all you encounter this holiday season.

To my family and all my friends — “real” and cyber— have a wonderfully, joy-filled Christmas.

    • No white Christmas here I’m afraid, but that won’t stop us from having a great time. Snow’s on the way for Monday! Merry Christmas, Tricia!

  6. “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” [Matthew 5:16] There are so many references to light in the Bible, but I especially love your image and its message. A perfect quotation for the season.

    Thank you for your online friendship, Laura, and for supporting my blogging efforts with your visits and comments. Your encouragement is appreciated so very much.

    May the weather cooperate so that you have a safe and wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.

  7. Dear Laura:

    Thank you for the lovely (true) quote and Christmas wish.

    I have really related to your seasonal posts over the last little whille, and as my big family and I get together tonight for appetizers/desserts and games, I’ll be focussed on the fun, laughter and memories we’re sharing/building, not on trying to make everything “perfect.” Thanks for the apropos remdinder!

    Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful New Year to you and yours, :) Ev
