Christmas Sunshine

A sunshiney day overflowing with God's blessings, like beautiful children in new clothes.

And wonderful things to eat, and a tableful of family to share with.

A spotting scope for Felix, and a trip to the lake to practice viewing the gulls.

Lots and lots of cello-piano music from Clara and the Composer. A fire in the woodstove.

A tree full of beloved ornaments. A hike. A happy baby riding a tricycle down the hall.

"Your sun will set no more; neither will your moon wane; for you will have the Lord for an everlasting Light, and the days of your mourning will be finished."
(Isaiah 60: 20)

I loved the scripture verse, Anna!
What a wonderful treasure of words to focus on, as my Mom went to her heavenly home this year. You have a beautiful family. Pictures of your little one has brought smiles to my face several times! I enjoy your blog.

I love your comment of "a happy baby riding a tricycle down the hall." :-) Brings back fun memories of the Christmas my older two kids were rollerblading(!) in the house because there was over a foot of snow the ground! ;-)
