A Great Light -Postcard Friendship Friday #289

Thanksgiving was wonderful--family, friends, good food--lots of laughter and music.  It was joyful.  My Beloved husband, who left for heaven a little over a year ago, would have been delighted.  Our small niece was playing my daughter's tiny pink Ukulele.  And wow!  She is doing GREAT for her age--music runs in our veins.

In fact, after Thanksgiving dinner, we had a regular Hootenanny.  With three ukuleles, the big bass fiddle and a guitar we made quite a little band.  We sang and laughed and joked--ah, we made some precious memories yesterday. 

And now Christmas is just around the corner.  I have always loved Christmas--this year, with my sis and niece living with me, we will actually decorate for the holiday.

I am so glad we have a special day to celebrate the greatest story ever told.  Isaiah 9:2 of the Old Testament of the Bible prophesied, "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them."  God sent His dear One to earth--He is the light-bearer, the one honored at Christmas.

I love the idea of God's Light upon earth. Light is warmth and illumination.  I know what it is like to live in darkness and depression--feeling so lost and alone--these words found in Matthew 4:15 are a great comfort to me.  "The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."   

Merry Christmas dear ones.  May God bless you with His light, joy and comfort.

A beautiful card. Here we're waiting with preparing for Christmas till after 5 December. That's the night before Saint Nicholas Day and that evening we celebrate 'Sinterklaas' with the giving of gifts. Saint Nicholas is an elderly, stately and serious man with white hair and a long, full beard. On his white horse, he rides on the roofs while his helpers, the black Petes, carry a bag which contains candy for nice children and a birch rod, a chimney sweep's broom made of willow branches, used to spank naughty children. All the little kids believe in Sinterklaas. Strange festivities we know in the low lands, not? Happy PFF.
