Glad Tidings

The world waits with bated breath as we move closer towards the day of JOY and all it brings...a celebration of hope eternal.... trusting tomorrow will be better and brighter.

I have a copy of Maya Angelou's small book, "Amazing Peace, A Christmas Poem". It is literature that I find myself drawn too, over and over again.... not just at the holidays, but all year long.... such an inspiring reminder of our deep desire for a world where there is Peace & Goodwill Toward All Men.

'Tis christmas time
the christ child born,

repeat the noise
of sounding joys,

a chilly morn
a world of white,

all is calm
all is bright.

A winter sky
in shades of gray,

peace to you
upon this day,

the bells ring out
to humble hearts,

give thanks,
give praise,
and celebrate.

From the bottom of my heart... Many THANKS for visiting this blog of mine. I ADORE hearing from each and every one of you. Your beautiful comments always fill me with such happiness... I truly hold your words close to my heart.

Wishing you and yours Glad Tidings of Great JOY!

Just stopping by to wish you a very happy new year and to soak up more of the beauty you so generously share with us!

Also to let you know that your photograpy in Somerset's new publication is fabulous! The heart-hands are very moving! The wise-with-age hands contrasted with the shiny hearts, repeated in the shape they make in holding the hearts is a volume of poetry in itself! How gorgeous that piece is. It just had to be mentioned!
