“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
No point adding any commentary to the mighty words of Dickens.They stand alone.
As we move into a new year, which doesn’t really have such a clean slate after all, I pray for peace in our time for 2016 and that love may fill our world and every and every breath.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, I remain a believer.
How about you?
Thanks to Merrill Smith from Yesterday and today: Merril’s historical musings for putting me onto this brilliant quote!
Wishing you an “Almost Happy New Year” with two days to go. Our peace and quiet will be turned up several decibels this afternoon when the kids arrive back from their grandparents’. Then, the sounds of kids, dogs and “Ollie” the robot will replace the sounds of silence.
We love our rich and busy lives but a little pause every now and then is also appreciated!
