Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays

Fifth Avenue at Christmastime.

At the end of our church service on Sunday our great minister Donna Schaper said, "Find a way to be more tender with each other on a regular basis."

At the end of the service on the previous Sunday we sang "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" with the lyric "O tidings of comfort and joy."
Donna Schaper said, "Now the service begins. Leave here and be yourself a tiding of comfort and joy."

I hope this blog is a tiding of comfort and joy.
Cheers, and enjoy the holidays.

Her first utterance is the perfect thought for the forthcoming new year.

Despite the economic climate, I have so much hope for the future. I'll try to put Donna's words into action. Thanks for a beautiful blog, and Happy Holidays!
