Rejoice!



"The time draws near the birth of Christ:
The moon is hid; the night is still;
The Christmas bells from hill to hill
Answer each other in the mist.


Four voices of four hamlets round,
From far and near, on mead and moor,
Swell out and fail, as if a door
Were shut between me and the sound:
Each voice four changes on the wind,
That now dilate, and now decrease,


Peace and goodwill, goodwill and peace,
Peace and goodwill, to all mankind."

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson Voices in the Mist


Warm and wonderful Christmas wishes to all my Blogger friends!

Hi Isabella - thanks for all your encouraging words and visits throughout the year.

Festive greetings of the season, whatever the festival or season means for you! I don’t get much time these days to visit and leave comments for all my bloggy friends…but love catching up with pics when I can.

What a lovely picture!
It's Christmas Day here in Canada, the sky is grey, and the sun is hiding behind the clouds. It's cold and there are remnants of last weeks snowstorm still on the ground, making it a rather muddy white Christmas. But it's a lovely day, and I wish you and your family all the best, and may 2008 be a good year for you.
