Merry Christmas! God Bless All!

Since I do not blog on Sundays, I will post a Christmas message tonight, Christmas eve. Plans? With all the kids having flown from the nest a decade ago, Donnie and I will be having our Christmas eve dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, run by Korean, prior to midnight Mass, which is at 10:30 this evening. (It finishes at midnight, so the name is not entirely misleading.)

As he does every year, Finnegan, our priest's black cat, has wandered from the cold into the warmth of the manger. Both he, and Sula, our parish's white cat, take turns sleeping in the manger. Sometimes they share it.

Sharing warm Christmas wishes with all! May God bless each one of you tomorrow and all days of this happy season!


  1. Merry Christmas to you also ...

  2. Hope your Christmas was wonderful, Rhonda.

  3. Now that is what a manger should be for!! I love that photo. Hoping you are having some blessed Christmas days.
    Warmest regards from Greece
    - and thanks so much for your sweet words on God's Little People.

  4. Hope you had a blessed Christmas Elizabeth!

    God Bless.

  5. I just finished reading your recap of your Christmas season and I was reminded of the prayer I prayed on the way to work this morning...after reviewing my own personal year, I was once again so thankful that despite all the challenges, there was joy springing up right beside it all! We serve a mighty God! Love the cats in the manger. Several years ago I found some little ceramic cats and added them to my it is complete! A blessed and happy New Year to you and your family, Elizabeth...Lori
