christmas cheer


"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to
the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the
old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport
the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!"
~Charles Dickens

Delightful blog Saija.
Some of your links are my favs. too.

Pardon me, but your name sounds European. The j is pronounced like a y isn 't it? Or it could be french.

The Dickens quote if very good.

Morning! I loved your card...those angels playing to the baby Jesus...just precious. The art itself is wonderful...I'd never seen that picture before and gave your card a place of honor on the sideboard in the living room. Have you ever heard of the author Cathy Hake? She wrote 'Letter Perfect' and a sequel..'Bittersweet'. I'm on the sequel now and can hardly put it down. Light reading but oh how I've enjoyed how the author brings honor to our Lord in the story. Do you have the Library Interloan system in Canada or something like it? I use it with great appreciation. We've been so busy here...my blogging as suffered but hope things get back to normal after the first of the year. *hugs* from Maggie Ann =)
