Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made,

and forgot to put a soul into. 

~Henry Beecher,

Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories. 

~From the movie An Affair to Remember

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy. 

~William Blake

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,

for the touch of a friendly hand and for

a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.

~Edith Sitwell

One kind word can warm three winter months. 

~Japanese Proverb

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord
 appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today
 in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:8-11 (NIV)

Guess what?

I have a sister in law,

she has a daughter,

the daughter has a son,

and he is home for the holidays.

Read about him and the

surprise he gave upon his return home.
