whenever i hear the tune of 'silent night' during the holidays, the words in my head are in spanish first. i don't know why; it's not something i do regularly with anything else. for some reason, the song 'noche de paz' is just like that for me. :)
my favorite card is the one to the center-right; it simply says:
"How silently the wondrous gift is giv'n"
from, of course, the christmas carol 'o little town of bethlehem'. i don't think that phrase
has ever jumped out at me like it has this year. it is one of those thoughts that is so
profoundly simple; the kind that makes you really think about what things in your own
life have been given so silently. without pomp and circumstance, without fanfare, void
of any kind of heraldry.....but all the while, oh, so very much more important than most
i'm also having fun with this one...another version of some cards for cozy christmas.
has your christmas been cozy so far?
here's to a very cozy christmas.
