Christmas Memories 2012

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Christmas reflections...
Now that the hustle and bustle are over,
I can slow down to reflect and to enjoy quietly 
before moving into the new year.

Santa on the mantle looks up
with a wondering gaze upon his face,
filled with hope and anticipation.

A reindeer also with an uplifted head and antlers...
Another symbol of hope...

Starry votives nestled among white magnolias in dazzling sunlight...

An empty silver coffee server brightly reminds of friends and family
who shared meals, games, and companionship...

More stars as reminders of the 
*  radiant star  *
that led wise men to a lowly manger
that contained the 
hope of the world...

Packages and presents lovingly wrapped for loved ones...

Antique Christmas cards on the coffee table
express Christmas greetings in timeless words and scenes...

Christmas is the 
milestone which
marks the names and 
nearness of friends.
Wishing you 
memories of a joyous Christmas
hope of a more joyous new year!

Hope to see you at linking parties.....
