~Christmas Eve, Joyful Wishes, Joyeux Noël, Buon Natale! Etc..

It's Christmas Eve already! With all the snow I've seen on the weather channel, it must really seem like it to many of you.

Nothing new on the table this year. I've had everything for either a long time or at least a couple of years. My lovely old Irish linen napkins on the "wrong"side where I kind of like them. I'll move them to please other another time. The plates were a surprise that I had forgotten about. I should have been using them for the last month but decided they would be pretty for a little dinner.

If you wander by here on your journey of home tours or just playing tourist in Blogland, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and PEACE in the New Year. Maybe we can create Peace in the World one person, and one family at a time.

My heart is filled with Christmas Joy even as there is an ache over the war that wages on beyond our sight and sound. War is evil, said a wise and wonderful Noble Peace Prize winner. Very seldom ever necessary and always evil. I pray for the young soldiers so far away from home this HolyDay , their families, and for all the people there.

May You Be Filled with Joy and Peace!
Merry Christmas, and Peace On Earth
to Men of Good Will!

  14. Donna,
    Perusing earlier posts as well as the current one leaves no doubt that you have a lovely home with beautiful Christmas decor....

    I certainly echo that we need to remember our men and women in service who are fighting for freedom.....the least we can do is pray for their safety......

    Blessings to you and wishing a healthy, safe and prosperous new year....Betty
