A previous post from August of last year and a reminder of a hope and a choice that bears repeating in our world today. God bless! ~M
What will you persevere in accomplishing in 2014?
Here is hoping everyone’s wishes came true this Christmas and offered prayers for a blessed and Happy New Year for each of us!!! ~M
“Christmas Old Man”
“Dun Che Lao Ren” is Chinese for “Christmas Old Man,” and how Christian children in China refer to Santa Claus. Muslin stockings are specially made and hung by the children on Christmas Eve, hoping they will be filled with wonderful gifts on Christmas!

A wonderful quote taken from the book ‘Battles Men Face‘ by Gregory L. Jantz, PhD and so true!
Life is meant to be lived fully and if you are not engaged you are settling for less. As we are in the season where miracles are more easily believed, purpose to live the rest of your days with no regrets! Merry Christmas! ~M

when lost in the night
Christmas spirit abounds
deeper magic sounds
eternity forever resides
within the hearts’ tides
light overcomes the dark
when love casts a spark
from power that’s given
we begin truly livin’
a flame forever burning bright
illuminating the black night
(This poem was written based on inspiration from John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not understood it.” and it seemed this simple colored pencil drawing I completed previously and then edited using PicMonkey complemented it perfectly. God Bless!)
