a quiet moment

It's early for a Saturday. I'm the only one awake. Enjoying the quiet and the simple beauty of our white lights on my favorite decoration display in the house.

For years I collected snowmen and trees. This year they have found a home together atop the Baldwin 1919 Grand Piano my father bought for me in 1971.

As I sit in quiet, it's a perfect opportunity to reflect on the events and blessings of 2009 as well ponder what lies ahead in the new year. I plan to spend the remaining days of 2009 focused on time with family and friends, enjoying each other's company, laughter and creating new memories together. I also hope to carve out a bit of time to finish a list I started a few days ago; a list that includes books for reading in 2010 and goals for self and family.

May you and yours find a moment of peaceful quiet during the busy-ness of the next week. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

"Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David." ~ Luke 2:11

Merry Christmas to you and your family Nancy. Enjoy the family time.

I love snowmen too, there is something about those little button eyes and a carrot nose that gets me everytime.
