Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from our hearts to yours…

Thanks for following our blog this past year.

We’ve loved sharing our thoughts and ideas with you,

along with the wisdom of those much wiser than we are.

We would also enjoy hearing your ideas and input.


Meanwhile, we hope your December features meaningful activities,

Your Christmas Eve is a “silent night, holy night”

Your Christmas Day is filled with the joy of this season’s true meaning

And your post-Christmas week is both relaxing and exhilarating.


For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son so that

whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  (John 3:16, NIV)


Rejoicing in His name,

Mary, the City Cousin

Sharon, the Country Cousin
