A state of mind

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”
Calvin Coolidge

Now that Jeff is home, my days and hours are engulfed in happy busyness.  I can’t seem to let a day go by, though, without sending out a greeting to all who visit here.  I hope that everyone is having the kind of holiday season that President Coolidge described.  Thanks for being here!

One year ago today

Give freely and abundantly

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.


  1. Good morning, Julia! Yes, we can cherish peace and goodwill and be plenteous in mercy all year long! With God’s help.
    That is super, because we can’t “miss Christmas this year” if we consider Christmas as being larger than a “season”!
    Blessings to you today!

    • Susan, EXACTLY! As my friend Ashleigh has said, Joy to the World, whether the world deserves it or not.” 😀 Blessing to you too! Thank you for being here.
