“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though
thou be little among the thousands of Judah,
yet out of thee shall come forth unto me
that is to be ruler in Israel; whose
goings forth have been from of old,
from everlasting”.    ~ Micah 5:2 KJV ~

With a nod to the season, let’s put on our music and sing –

Silent Night

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

~ Lyrics by Joseph Mohr  1816
~ Music by Franz Xaver Gruber  1818

Snow Bound

Shut in from all the world without,
We sat the clean-winged hearth about,

Content to let the north-wind roar,
In baffled rage at pane and door,

While the red logs before us beat
The frost-line back with tropic heat;

And ever, when a louder blast
Shook beam and rafter as it passed,

The merrier up its roaring draught
The great throat of the chimney laughed.

~ John Greenleaf Whittier (1865)


What can I say, I love, love Christmas, and, I do love snow and if truth be known I also love it when sleet is heard hitting the windows.  It makes me appreciate the blessings of a warm home.  However, too much of a good thing is just that, too much.

So, I am posting graphics that have nothing to do with Christmas, with winter or with the cold and hoping it will nag at your creative side and get you busy making beautiful items, if you get stuck indoors.

Click to enlarge, and click again if you wish to use the larger size.
