This is the first I chance I have had to sit in peace and quiet today...with only 30 minutes before the close of Christmas 2011. It has been a wonderful day and I hope you were blessed with the same. I have been thinking all day on the homily given by the priest at our Christmas Mass. He spoke about a pilgrimage he took to the West Bank town of Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity. He described his passage through the church, the birthplace of Christ, where he kissed the star that marks the exact spot where Christ was born. I smiled as he spoke because I was travelling with him through my photos. I was walking with him side by side. I visited the church last year and was in as much awe of this holy site as he was. The image above came to mind, in a church that was filled with tourists, I wanted to find the peace that I felt at that very moment. I looked up and followed the light... just before the door I noticed the hearts. I found my picture. This is a message to simply say that I wish for you all..love in your life, peace in your heart and happiness throughout the coming year.
Happy Holidays to one and all...I hope you are able to share it with people you hold near and dear. Thank you all for your very kind Christmas wishes, I feel very fortunate and honored to have so many wonderful friends around the world. I look forward to reading and following your stories into 2012. :)
and with that, I say goodnight...
