Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Christmas Wishes, Poetry and Thanks

Hello friends,

Christmas is less than one week away. I suppose that you are bustling about your homes, busy with last minute preparations. I will soon be off to visit my son Samuel for a few days, followed by a visit to my house from son John and his family, and daughter Heather and her brood. In between will be gatherings with hubby's clan and my wonderful stepchildren.

 It's about Jesus. It's about family. And about friends like you, who for some unexplicable reason visit my little spot in the cyber-universe. Thank you! Your visits and thoughtful comments have warmed my heart all year long.  I'll leave you with two reposts, poems by meself-- and my fondest wishes that you have a Merry, Joyful, and Meaningful Christmas...and that the New Year be filled with Peace and Happiness, and that you will ever keep your sense of awe and wonder.








A Christmas Greeting
by Debora Rorvig


On this wintry Sunday eve
I'm nestled in my cozy old
well-worn chair
by the fireplace;
Watching raindrops slowly drizzling
down the windowpanes
and reveling in the luxury
of Quiet.

The Christmas tree twinkles brightly in the corner near the fire,
it's boughs are fragrant fir.
I yawn a bit and sigh
and sip my chamomile tea
from my favorite flowery mug,
And reminisce of Christmas's past
And firelight
And mistletoe...

and You.

God,

How must you have felt

the day You tenderly wrapped

Your only Son

in Human flesh

and laid him on a bed of straw

at the doorstep of this world?

Who am I

that You would give your precious Child

to me?



Debora Rorvig
