Hello December . . . the month of the longest night and the shortest day . . .
Drearily wrapped in a sombre cloak of grey . . . after all the colour of October and November . . . were it not for the gift of Christmas, we might think you most unlovely . . .
Amidst the grey and ice crystals lurks the "most wonderful time of the year" . . .
With hanging stars and garnished branch . . . and hearth fires all aglow
Sugar . . . spice . . . and candlelight . . .
Long held traditions . . . and love for mankind . . . family and friend and even foe . . .
light and love . . . love and light . . .
hearts burn afresh with the milk of human kindness . . .
hands open to give and to receive . . . oh drear December, unlovely in some ways but ever welcome for she comes to bring . . .
The greatest Gift of all . . .
From God to man . . . that greatest gift most precious. . . the Birthday of the King . . .from December's hand we take this gift most wonderful, which crowns the end of the year . . .
the Christmas miracle . . .
God bless us . . . every . . . one . . .
A thought to carry with you through the day . . .
In The English Kitchen today . . . Hazelnut and Chocolate Crumb Cake. Yum!
Have a fabulous Saturday. May it be filled with light. Don't forget . . .
