Quiet reflections of Christmas

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

We may even have a white Christmas...chances are slim for us in North Central Missoutri.  We have chances for dizzle tonight but the temps are above freezing.

I decided since the girls and their families were here over thanksgiving holiday that I won't be using the good dishes this year at Christmas but maybe I should just get them out and wash and shine them up.  I love the look of clean shining glass.

This is my new box that I got last week end while in the city.  I thought it would go well with my colors in the DR and the wingback chairs...had to have it.  I can now hide another in progress project.

My cozy little corner of the world.  I purchased a new DVD of Jackie Evancho.  I read and listen to Jackie...what a relaxing treat!
I have refused to let the season control me this year.  I have learned to say...Sorry, No Thank You..

I believe Jesus is the reason for Christmas.  But people all over the world have celebrated with many different traditions at Christmas and we do put up a Christmas tree and dig out the old ornaments but I don't worship Santa or the tree.   I make and buy gifts to give to family and friends.  I enjoy listening to Christmas music, sending and receiving Christmas cards, making the sweet treats, and just letting the Christmas season warm and renew my heart for another year.  I think it is another excuse to give to others.  A time to put those that need before my own wants.  A time to gather with family and friends. 

I love to eat a good meal at the formal dining table with the good dishes and then have a beautiful sweet desert with a cup of hot aromatic coffee.

I treated myself to Jan Brett's story book.  I love to look at her beautiful illustrations.  (handmade mittens, knitting, ) Nana will have a new story book to read to my grandchildren. 
We pray that everyone all over the world has a warm bed to sleep in, food in their pantry, a warm secure home, good health, and family and friends to share their food and home.  May we all have peace and joy this Christmas.
God Bless.
