The Peace of Christmas

In our joy, we think we hear a whisper.

At first it is too soft. Then only half heard.

We listen carefully as it gathers strength.

We hear a sweetness. The word is Peace.

We tremble at the sound. We are thrilled by its presence.

It is what we have hungered for.

Not just the absence of war. But true Peace.

A harmony of spirit, a comfort of courtesies.

Security for our beloveds and their beloveds.

We welcome the Peace of Christmas.  

Maya Angelou

Such a perfect piece to read right now. It makes me feel the peace and gives me hope during this beautiful season. And that is what I feel every time I come to your blog, your creative home, where you share your heart, tell us and show us what is important to you. You are a creative whirlwind Cheryl, and are bursting with love and appreciation all the time, plus a spirit of adventure and wanting to know more of the world and show it to the boys. I am so grateful to have found you several years ago and it has been such a joy to share our mutual passions, which include photography of course but extend far beyond that. Wishing you and your amazing family the most beautiful and treasured of Christmases! Sending lots of love from Canada! xoxoxoxo
