Merry Christmas!

Peace and Hope to Every Heart
Great Little One!
Whose all-embracing birth
lifts earth to heaven,
stoops heaven to earth.
-Richard Crashaw

(This is one of the trees our friends gave us and we planted in March. See this link. For a photograph of hope, I thought of trees. As seedlings, they have a determined will to live and grow. A slow pace, yet constant. As established trees, they are the whispering giants among us, solid and stable (most of the time), protective and beautiful. This is also the photograph on our Christmas cards this year.)
