Chapter 12, Page 1, Book 19



December is the toughest month of the year.  Others are July, January, September, April, November, May March, June, October, August and February.

Mark Twain

December 1st - It’s the Most wonderful time of the year.  


How did it get so late so soon?  Its night before its afternoon.  December is here before it is June.  My goodness how the time has flown.  How did it get so late so soon?

Dr. Seuss

Now that Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday are over, It’s the Christmas season and I’m celebrating it the month of December and more….  It’s the season of love and I’ve got many quotes and verses to share on that subject. Usually I choose love to be the topic of my posts for February, the month of Love.  But this year I’m going to give it another time and place.  

After all Love came down at Christmas

Love came down at Christmas 
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Chritmas
Star and angels gave the sign.

Christina Rossetti  

It’s the month of joy, happiness and love.  It’s the most wonderful time of year and my favorite holiday season   Decorating the tree, eating Christmas dinner with family, exchanging gifts with loved ones, delving in on Christmas cookies, what’s not to love about Christmas.

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.

Hamilton Wright Mable

There is nothing that brings family together more than Christmas cheer.  Whether your relatives are out of state  or near by, Christmas is the one time we all have to forgo our routines and make this time of year special by making time for the people who mean so much to us.  

Christmas is a wonderful and magical time of year and it’s almost here !

Remember this December,
That love weighs more than gold!

Don't know how I missed this yesterday, Ma, but glad you are sharing love quotes for this month! Indeed God did show his love to us by sending Jesus!

Like Betty said, I'm sorry to have missed this when you first posted. Aren't internet 'issues' the pits? Your first photo reminds me of the flocked trees my former hubby and I used to enjoy; seeing it makes my heart smile.
