Merry Christmas!


Sorry I’ve been so quiet around here. I’ve been hanging out with my grandchildren a lot.  😀 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy new year!

Have a Blessed Christmas

Wishing you and yours a joyous, peaceful and blessed Christmas celebration with family and friends.


Today on the More to Life Magazine blog,

I’m sharing St. Nicholas traditions.

And if you or a loved one gets an Ereader, tablet or iPad this Christmas, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to download Deadly Devotion for FREE from online retailers. The offer and discounts on books 2&3 extend through January.

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?
