Christmas Greetings!

I couldn’t resist sharing a picture of our very own Canadian (the birthplace of hockey, eh?) shepherd keeping watch over her fields. *grin* 

I pray you all enjoy a blessed Christmas. 

I am taking a break from blogging over the holidays and will be back to my regular Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule beginning January 2nd. Hope to see you then.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a poem by William Ellery Channing entitled My Symphony.

To live content with small means.
To seek elegance rather than luxury,
     and refinement rather than fashion.
To be worthy not respectable,
     and wealthy not rich.
To study hard, think quietly, talk gently,
     act frankly, to listen to stars, birds, babes,
     and sages with open heart, to bear all cheerfully,
     do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,
     grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony. 

Your Turn: The last word is yours! What do you think?


Great to "see" you here today! I look forward to reading your comment.
