Merry Christmas to All!


I so appreciate all of my friends who stop by to visit. And sadly, I'm aware that some of you are also living with loss in your lives. Although I realize that words are often inadequate, words are all I have to offer ...

When someone so loved is gone from the circle, a time like this can tug at the heart. Quietly, gently may the spirit of the season shine through your shadows and touch your world with warmth and light.

Wishing you peace and love at Christmas!
~Kate and Jona

    “A NEW LITTLE GIRL IN HEAVEN”

    “And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls, playing in the streets thereof.” (Zechariah 8:5)

    “A NEW LITTLE GIRL IN HEAVEN”

    “’Oh! what do you think the angels say?’
    Said the children up in heaven,
    ‘There’s a dear little girl coming home today;
    She’s almost ready to fly away
    From the earth we used to live in;
    Let’s go and open the gates of pearl,
    Open them wide for the new little girl,’
    Said the children up in heaven.

    ’God wanted her here, where His little ones meet,’
    Said the children up in heaven,
    ‘She will play with us in the golden street!
    She has grown too fair, she has grown too sweet,
    She needs the Sonshine, this dear little girl,
    That gilds this side of the gates of pearl,’
    Said the children up in heaven.

    So the King called down from the angel’s dome,
    Said the children up in heaven,
    ‘My little darling, arise and come
    To the place prepared in thy Father’s home,
    To the home My children live in.”
    ‘Let’s go and watch at the gates of pearl,
    Ready to welcome the new little girl,’
    Said the children up in heaven.
    “’Far down on the earth do you hear them weep?
    Said the children up in heaven,
    ‘For the dear little girl has gone to sleep;
    The shadows fall and the night clouds sweep
    O’er the earth we used to live in;
    But we’ll go and open the gates of pearl;
    Oh! why do they weep for their dear little girl?’
    Said the children up in heaven.

    “’Fly with her quick,O, angels dear,’
    Said the children up in heaven,
    ‘See ---she is coming! Look there! Look there!
    At the jasper light on her sunny hair,
    Where the veiling clouds are riven!
    Ah-hush-hush-hush all the swift wings furl!
    For the King Himself at the gates of pearl
    Is taking her hand, dear, tired little girl,
    And leading her into heaven.’”

    “He shall gather the lambs with His Arm and carry them in His bosom.” (Isa.40 : 11.)

    Hugs to you and Jona and the Man
