from the movie "The Nativity Story"

On the Morning of Christ's Nativity
This is the month, and this the happy morn
Wherein the Son of Heav'n's eternal King,
Of wedded Maid, and Virgin Mother born,
Our great redemption from above did bring;
For so the holy sages once did sing,
That he our deadly forfeit should release,
And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.
John Milton

A holy, happy Christmas to all.

ABC Wednesday

W is for Whispers

The Whisper of the sun on a mountain top - a small glow of assurance on a gloomy day.

A Whisper of clouds fanning out across the sky, - radiating from a central point on the horizon and breathing softly of not-so-gentle winds above, despite their lovely benign appearance.

A Whisper of mist in the valley bottom, showing promise of lifting and floating away.

A Whisper of slanting rays, telling secrets of more promises that lie beyond the mountain.

A Whisper from the past as I once again tack up the lovely blue angel hanging our daughter made for us when she was a young art student, forty years ago.

And a Whisper of music from the Whisperers who hail from the same era.

For your ears only!!
