Christmas thoughts

Do you ever just sit by the tree and take in the beauty of the season?

After everyone has gone to bed, do you fill a plate with some sweet goodness, make a hot cup of tea and just enjoy the quietness of the evening?

Do you sometimes wonder what the Shepherds thought on that night, so many years ago, when the Angelic host proclaimed the birth of Jesus?

What an awe filled experience that must have been.

And for now, I will turn the lights down low, and pretend the twinkling of the Christmas tree are the stars of the Universe proclaiming the birth of our Savior, Christ the Lord.

                                 Merry Christmas!

A Christmas Eve treat

What is better on Christmas Eve then cookies, milk, hot tea or cocoa?

I hope your Christmas was as wonderful and delicious as a cold glass of milk, or a hot cup of tea and a freshly baked cookie.

Take time...

If you had a guest coming for tea, how would you set a Christmas theme table?

I love the Red china.  It makes for a festive table any time of the year.

Come, sit a spell, and enjoy a cup of tea with me.

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.  ~Henry James

O Christmas Tree

This huge Christmas tree sits in the plaza at the Wiregrass Shopping Center. I was standing at the base and pointed my camera up. It was amazing.

Sunday Morning

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

Holiday tables

I thought I would share some holiday tables I've done through the years.

Do you dress your tables for the holidays? I find this is one of the easiest ways to decorate for the seasons.

Sunday Morning

I avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.
