Happy Christmas to you all, and thanks for dropping by. Hope you have a peaceful and relaxing Christmas break, and if you are, please think of/pray for those who aren't, whether in Afghanistan or serving at the local supermarket, or locked up in Yarls Wood.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing wiwhich Christ brings
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts
Forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen (RL Stevenson)

There might be the occasional scheduled post between now and the new year, but otherwise that's all I have to say for the moment. So that's one thing to be thankful for. Meanwhile thankyou for gracing this blog with your presence, and for commenting, linking, tweeting (or mentioning it in conversation for those unfortunate enough to know me personally). Bless you for visiting.
