Joyeux Noel


I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
May your days be filled with love,  joy and laughter with those you love.

Thank you for being such an encouragement, your comments always warms my heart.
I cherish the friends I have made through my blog.



Christmas is forever, not just for one day for loving, sharing giving are not to put away, like bells and lights and tinsel in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
~Norman Wesley Brooks "Let every day be Christmas"


 Have a safe and happy holiday
Hugs 
Carolyn

    I love this poem, as I believe this is what the Lord would want - for us to have Christmas in our hearts all year long. I will try to remember this always. Thank you for this, my friend. I hope the new year brings you much joy and peace, dear Carolyn.
