  1. You are sleepy, you are sleeepy, you are sleeeepy... @JEFoxley

  2. Both of those of which I hold, are made of living, purest gold@KirstyLakey

  3. Eyes shine
    Eyes seek
    holy light.
    Eyes see
    a divine world:
    New love,


    Beautiful art work!

  4. A mother’s love,
    On angel wings.
    A blessed child:
    The future king.


  5. The angel gave joy in tinkling tones,
    and the child gave the gift of laughter.


  6. She holds the child close. I must leave now, but I will watch over you. A star, lighting the way, no matter how dark. @riewriting #W8PAdvent

  7. Oh flip! Someone's dented my halo.

  8. Let your dreams stretch as wide as the universe as the stars sing you lullabies and the moon lights your path #W8Padvent @melgreen73

  9. C'mon baby. Look at this cool dangly thing and don't start crying - not until I find your mum. #w8padvent @evangelinecluck


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
