Today’s photo is not a photo but a series of photos put to music. For the past several weeks, Joe and Charlie have been listening to “A Christmas Together, John Denver and the Muppets“. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I recommend you purchase this CD. Every song on the CD is full of delight, right down to the song “We wish you a Merry Christmas” and the verse, “Now bring us some figgy pudding”, which Ms. Piggy hears as “bring us some piggy pudding”. Good times, readers. I promise.
I hope you enjoy this song, “A Christmas Wish”, sung by Kermit the Frog. The sentiment has no boundaries, and it is my wish to you. Because I believe a big part of Christmas is love, I wish you, regardless of your background and/or belief, a merry Christmas.
For the past four or five years, maybe longer, we’ve made the journey to Santa’s house at least once during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. In prior years, we’d visit Santa just about every Friday night. This year, our first visit was late in the season. Hopefully, we’ll get back at least one more time before he flies away on his sleigh. We are so lucky to have Santa living close to our house.
Today, I literally went out and bought more candles for the house. I am not going to let the darkness discourage me. Instead, I will find light and step forward. And, as I look at the glow of our Christmas tree, I have a greater appreciation for the fact that the boys, after I hung the lights, decorated the entire tree themselves. Their work is surrounded in light. What a glorious light. My prayers remain with all those mourning the loss of a loved one.
