it's link up time!

It's the most wonderful time of the year 
There'll be much mistletoeing 
And hearts will be glowing 
When love ones are near 
It's the most wonderful time 
It's the most wonderful time 
It's the most wonderful time 
It's the most wonderful time of the year

it's the hap-happiest season of all....

i like to think it's such a happy time of year because it's the day our salvation was born.
i mean honestly, where do you think all this "good cheer" came from?
just some random day that "man" created for people to get excited about.
yes, i know that most of the ways christmas is celebrated is not at all what it was meant to be.
but when you think about the true meaning of christmas, it is very happy.
it's full of hope.

hope for everyone. every man. every woman. every child.
hope of brighter days.
and a reason to be very thankful.
love was born in a manger that day so long ago.
a love like no other.
and a love that i'm so thankful i know.

  1. So pretty! Love that white tree!

    I also like what you wrote. The truth of the matter is that Christmas IS about HOPE and the ultimate gift of Christ. :)

    "hope of brighter days." - so appropriate for today, with the shootings in CT.
