The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

N ~ O ~ E ~ L !

On Crooked Creek,
our favorite phrase of the Christmas Season. . .

Noel is a French word
originating from Latin meaning "birthday".
The blocks spelling N O E L were made by "Mr. Ed" !
Another source states,
Noel has a French origin meaning "Christmas".

Atop the red china cabinet on the lower level,
a fitting place of presence
 for our family "Christmas" celebration !

Pronounced. . . NOH ~

Joined by our Garden Fairy,
she is keeping watch over our festivites
from on high !

Faux greenery, vintage Christmas ornaments
a vintage butter churn and our Garden fairy
make a lovely sight to behold atop the red cabinet !

So~o~o. . .
if one combines the two,

"Mr. Ed" and I wish you a Joyeux N O E L !
you have. . . Christmas birthday !
 On Crooked Creek
My Christmas letter header
was written days before the events of Newton, Connecticut.
". . .the Angels did say
was to certain poor shepherds in fields where they lay."
Even in His beginning ~
Christ came to give hope
to shepherds in difficult and trying times.
The same holds true today
in these difficult and trying times ~
Christ comes to give us hope.
                                              N O E L 
Until next time. . .
