I feel the winds of Christmas, the bite in the air, the beginnings of Christmas Card greetings and the music on my car radio.  Gratefully there have been no snow and ice hassles and life goes on.  My biggest joy at Christmas is sending and receiving greetings from friends and for years I have created my own cards somehow, someway.  This year's possibility is the image I will post next to this Merry Christmas blog.  A friend told me of a talk she heard recently that gave the message from Angels that wait beyond for our prayers, ready to help, she said, if only asked.  I loved the image that popped into my head and here is the painting done the next day.
