Christmas Sayings... #5

I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart 

is such a well-known character 
in literature.  
No last name is needed, 
but his last name, 
is even more well-known than Ebenezer. 

 Scrooge had a second chance to reform...  

from being a bitter old miser 
to becoming a generous benefactor. 

We have many opportunities at Christmas 

to be generous, 
but the true spirit of Christmas is 
a way of life all year. 

My gift to you...

I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart 

 I will honour Christmas in my heart, 
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Love, Love, LOVE this saying, Judith!
I am honored and delighted to have made your acquaintance this year!
You have re-defined "Bleu Christmas" and the "Bleu's", my friend!
Your handcrafted home beautiful, and artfully honed with love, inside and out!
Merry Christmas!

I don't know where the building in that photo is or what type of building, but it is beautiful.
