Let your soul stand ajar, always ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. ~ Emily Dickinson

Winds through the olive trees
Softly did blow,
Round little Bethlehem
Long, long ago.

Sheep on the hillside lay
Whiter than snow;
Shepherds were watching them
Long, long ago.

Then from the happy sky
Angels bent low,
Singing their songs of joy
Long, long ago.

For in a manger bed, 
Cradled we know,
Christ come to Bethlehem
Long, long ago.  ~ Katherine Parker 


May you and yours have a Most Blessed Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!
