Merry Christmas


Did Mary say to Joseph tenderly,
"Such little hands, such little feet!  They be
Like little shells we've found beside the sea,
The Sea of Galilee"?

And did wise Joseph answer, "For love's sake
Our love shall shelter Him, enclose and hold,
As the low hills about that silver lake
Shelter it, fold on fold?"

And then did Joseph's father-like surprise,
As round his finger little fingers curled,
Call smiles and tears to Mary's mother-eyes?
He clings who'll save the world.

(Amy Carmichael ... Just a portion of the Poem "Christmas Gifts")

"He clings who'll save the world."

From my heart to yours .... wishing you a wondrous Christmas!

Your photographic art is so beautiful, love your new banner too.
Hold the magic and wonder of Christmas close to your heart and into the New Year. Wishing you and Gary much joy this Christmas!
