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?
Love the pic..and the poem. Sandra, I hope you and your family have a very Merry & Blessed Christmas. Looking forward to your blogs in 2012!!
Thanks so much, Jackie. It’s been lovely getting to know you this year. I hope you enjoy Rick & Ginny’s Christmas story that I sent with the newsletter.
That picture is priceless!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours, Sandra!
Ha, ha! Love the picture. My kids and their cousins dress up to act out the Nativity story on Christmas Eve and I can’t help but giggle every year because they look so cute. 🙂
Love the little shepherd:)
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Thanks so much, Loree, Stacy and Loraine!
Very cute picture, Sandra! I hope you and your family have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
Is this how Canadian shepherd protect their lambs from predators? Too funny!
Have a great break,
