You Need a Break!


Busy?  Yeah, me too....swamped!!  Wrapping up Christmas commissions that have kept me busy for months.  Couldn't sleep last night worth a toot and am paying for it now.  Still have presents to buy and wrap, cookies to bake, grocery lists to make....you know the drill, right?  

But for just a minute, slow down.  Put down the list, the credit card, the scotch tape, the spatula and take a deep breath, and remember that all that *stuff* is just absolutely not Christmas.  

Remember the hymn...."It Came Upon the Midnight Clear".  One of my favorites because it could have been written this morning....verses 3 especially....

"O ye, beneath life's crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way,
With painful steps and slow,
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing,
O rest beside the weary road,
And hear the angels sing."

.....can you hear them?

Peace and love to you!
