.. let every day be Christmas ..

Christmas is forever, not for just 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.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Norman Wesley Brooks

merry christmas 2015 smaller

 

.. tree of ours may grow tall in the woods ..

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed,
but Nature’s sources never fail.
                             ~John Muir, Our National Parks

Depth over distance every time, my dear
And this tree of ours may grow tall in the woods
But it’s the roots that will bind us here
To the ground
