MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

Are you starting to wonder if you'll survive another holiday season? Your spare time is devoted to Christmas shopping and getting ready for arriving relatives.

As our culture becomes more consumed with excess, with iPods, Wiis, and large screen TVs, I hope that you can find a way to focus on the things that really matter...on sharing, caring, and the reason that we celebrate Christmas, the Christ Child. Merry Christmas to you.

What a gorgeous closeup of a little home in the Hollows! Our celebrations have been consumed with excess. I pray that we will all take time to remember the reason for the season, the Christ child, and take time to share with others our time and our love.

Don't you mean Happy Holidays??? These days, it's just not PC to say "Christmas", much less Christ.

I hope your Christmas was as special as your illustrations are.
