Merry Christmas, dear friends...


Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing,
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing,
Returns to you glad.

~John Greenleaf Whittier~

Thanks, Chris!

I thought you'd remember it, Bizzy. Those Currier & Ives prints (of the four seasons) hung on our wall for years, but I don't know whatever became of them!
