Here in Fayette County, Texas, familiar sights all around us announce that Christmas 2021 could well be a December to remember. Let me share several observations with you.

At the Hostyn Hill Greenhouses, Kathy is 
brightening the season, one poinsettia at a time.
My international Christmas cards are en route 
to family and friends around the world.
Susie’s prize-winning authentic Scottish 
shortbread looks almost too good to eat.
Visiting with my oldest friend, Hazel at
her kitchen table, is always time well spent.
On our tree, I hung a precious ornament 
that Mom sent me 25 years ago. 
This charming child lives far away, but a photo of sweet Olivia preparing for her first Christmas arrived as an email attachment.
Created by my friend Rabbit, the nativity scene at the county courthouse in La Grange proclaims the 
reason for the season: The birth of Jesus.

For God so loved the world. He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
