Uncomplicated thoughts: C.S. Lewis…”what snow’s made for.”

“Everyone begins as a child by liking the weather. You learn the art of disliking it as you grow up.  Noticed it on a snowy day?  The grown-ups are all going about with long faces, but look at the children and the dogs?  They know what snow’s made for.” C. S. Lewis

Uncomplicated thoughts: Imagine the possibilities

To a New Year

Honesty becomes national policy

Inner beauty wins a contest

The dollar gets stronger

Knees get weaker

Love conquers all

Headway is made

The hatchet is buried

Pleasure overthrows business

We become color blind

The winds are good

Stocks rise

Defenses are dropped

Roads are rebuilt

What comes around goes around

One month summer vacation is mandated

A cure for all ills is discovered

Losses are recovered

The meek inherit the earth

Good triumphs over all

Uncomplicated thoughts: Fra Giovanni’s Christmas Eve letter to a friend 1513

A portion of this meaningful letter:

“I salute you. I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not. But there is much, very much, that, while I cannot give it, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take heaven! No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant. Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. There is radiance and glory in darkness, could we but see. And to see, we have only to look. I beseech you to look! Life is so generous a giver. But we, judging its gifts by their covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering, and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love by wisdom, with power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the angel’s hand that brings it to you.” Fra Giovanni Giocondo

Lyrics of “Christmas Feeling”…golden wishes for you and yours…Merry Christmas!

I love that Christmas feeling
It does my heart so much good
Strangers I meet all seem like friends
And the world’s just a neighborhood

So here’s to the joy of Christmas
Here’s to the ones I hold dear
May you have that Merry Christmas feeling
All through a happy New Year
