♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ It’s the Most Wonderful Season of All♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ 

What happy faces do we see,
Their cares forgotten everyone,
This is the way it ought to be
From dawn until the set of sun.
These blessed days of joy and peace,
Bedecked with wonder, set apart,
Through all our yeas will never cease,
If we keep Christmas in our heart!

The 4th day of Christmas… December 28th

 Christmas is not just for a certain time of the year any more than love, peace, joy, and goodwill are for a certain time of the year.  Challenges will arise during the coming year. 

If we meet them in the Christmas spirit, optimism, love, and faith will prevail. Remembering the meaning of Christmas at any time of the year can be the good news of a great joy,

When Christmas is over and we are putting the decorations away, perhaps it may be helpful to leave one decoration out and placed where it can be seen. It will remind us of the deep significance of the season. A card, a tree ornament, a figurine, a candle or any special memento close to our hearts, may very well bring to our remembrance that Jesus' birth is once more here within us with its glorious message of love, faith, and peace.

 Christmas is for all seasons, for it is a season of the heart!

That's a good idea to leave one ornament or reminder of Christmas out to carry with us through the coming year. Changes do occur and will occur in this new year, but you are right, Ma, we need to carry that Christmas spirit with us as we navigate through our lives each and every day.

Betty had the same thought! I 'knowed' the girl was smart! LOL enjoyed the visit!


Happy faces are a welcome sight to behold at anytime throughout the year I agree.

A talisman of good will, then?
I've a few everyday objects in my 'ish' room which are meaningful to me only, but to add another - a reminder of the BEST day of the year - is a grand suggestion.
'Will have to sit and study the candidates before the lid closes!

We'll be putting out decorations away this weekend but we keep an ornament hanging in our front window.
