The Lamps Are Lit and The Tree Is Trimmed

Welcome Friends! Please Come In!


Candlelit Heart


 Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance...something we can share.
You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.
I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see --
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.
And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.
Mary E. Linton



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  17. Very lovely Sue! I have a purple, crystal, silver and white tree for the master bedroom but did not put it up this year. I actually have several trees but just couldn't get motivated. So I will enjoy looking at yours. Who knows, maybe next year I will have the energy to really decorate. Merry Christmas Sue!~Ames
