Everyone should carefully observe

which way his heart draws him,

and then choose that way with all his strength.

All that is real is seen with the heart.

Winter 2014 begins with the solstice on

Dec. 21st, at 6:03 P.M. EST.

This solstice is one of the two times each year when the Sun is at its farthest

 point from the equator and appears to stand still. The word solstice is

 derived from the Latin sol, or “Sun,” and stitium, or “stoppage.”

Read more about the first day of winter!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the solstice days are the days with the fewest

 hours of sunlight in the whole year. See your local Sun rise and set times.

After the solstice, planet Jupiter starts rising by 8:30 P.M. and is nicely high

 after 10:00 P.M. Venus might be glimpsed low in the west at dusk by month’s

 end—a harbinger of its superb evening star apparition this coming spring.

I am sure in days past, this was a very comfortable

sitting area. The floor boards have even began to

bow and rise up ....

Wow, such a small church, but quaint as can be.

In its day, there is no doubt in my mind it held

the old time Christian music and preachings.

Thought we might decorate a cookie today. Wow,

they make it look so easy.

What a neat Christmas eve this could be.

A neat front porch decorated just right.

Just love this collection of dishes and old

utensils. Very seasonal.

I just love this picture. How they ever got these beautiful

cats to lay in this basket with Christmas balls galore

is beyond me. So neat.

A picture perfect room all decorated

just right. Love the rounded window and of

course the kitty in the basket on the window ledge.

You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

Enjoy the day. Hard to believe

Christmas is almost here!

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
