Holiday Wishes

angel with harp, artist unknown

My holiday wishes for you this day, dear friend, are for all your stitches to be even, for your yarn stash to be fruitful, and for all your projects to fit perfectly. May your Christmas be joyful and filled with love, and your home be blessed. And may angels watch over you and yours always.

It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, goodwill to (all)
From heaven's all gracious King!"
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

 From a classic Christmas carol, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, based on a poem written in 1849 by Edmund Hamilton Sears, and set to music in 1859 by Richard Storrs Willis. Word in parenthesis, mine.
