Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support of my blog this past year. Our interactions on here have meant so much. I will end this year with a Christmas Eve prayer by the wonderful Robert Louis Stevenson. Have a very merry Christmas, and I’ll see you all again in January!
A Prayer for Christmas Eve, by Robert Louis Stevenson
Loving Father, help us remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and worship of the wise men. Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts. May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

Merry Christmas and a fabulous new year to you too!
A beautiful message for the season. Merry Christmas, Wendy … well to you and all those around you.
Merry Christmas to you too, Frank. And happy new year! Are you still planning to leave the blogging world soon? You will be sorely missed by many.
Yes … I’m guessing mid to late January. But I’m still cleaning out my blog closet. However plan an exit if a series of posts … Every other day … So my exit itself will be about 2 weeks. I will have a post sometime announcing the schedule. Hope that makes sense.
Thanks for the kind words … Merry Christmas and my Christmas post is up if you get a chance … Then again you are on blog break.
I’ll look forward to your final posts.
Wish I could give you a better timeline – but just don’t know yet.
Wonderful sentiments, thanks for sharing it and for your kind comments throughout the year.
And Happy New Year!
Thanks, Dale. Happy new year to you!
