Happy Holidays

Battling the holiday blues a bit. Since Chanukah starts today, I thought I'd post my first holiday "ecard." I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I put a little red into this. If I stop feeling sorry for myself, I may use that as a cheat to do Ruby Tuesday.

Wishing you the very best in 2009 Raven. May there be peace and happiness in the days ahead.

Hugs, G
PS: I can relate to feeling down, I am too. Too many people I'm missing, especially bad this time of year.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

How do so many people comment before I get here? Your card is beautiful too. I suffer the blues too, but it is only temporary and I pray that it passes for you too. Wishing you, Angel and Tara Grace a blessed holiday.

Yes and I'll do my part of peace how every small it shall be.

Twilight. Tremors shiver through the molten earth. Find us in our holy places. Generational memories embedded in DNA. I am grieving.

Making friends with the dark.

Happy Holidays to you!

Chanukah is a good holiday for those made gloomy by the winter, dark and cold. One of my favorite parts are the passages about light that are read each night:
First Evening: The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Isaiah 9:1
Second Evening: Though I fall, I shall rise; though I sit in darkness, the Lord shall
be a Light to me. Micah 7:8
Third Evening: For You light my lamp: the Lord G-d makes bright my darkness. 2 Samuel 22:29
Fourth Evening: Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; for the one who is gracious, compassionate, and just. Psalms 112:4
Fifth Evening: The Lord is my light and my Help; whom shall I fear? Psalms 26:1
Sixth Evening: For the Mitzvah are a lamp, and the Torah a light. Proverbs 6:23
Seventh Evening: Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the splendor of the Lord shall dawn upon you. Isaiah 60:1
Eighth Evening: No more shall the sun be your light by day, nor shall the moon give light to you by night; but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your G-d shall be your glory. Isaiah 60:19

Wishing you all the brightness and light of the season.

A beautiful card, and gorgeous pictures. Thank you!
And, Happy New Year - here's to a healthy, happy, prosperous 2009, complete with a Democrat in the White House!

There I go again - making a comment on the wrong (partially) post! My cursor ran away with me, and I ended up too far down. So, when I refer to gorgeous photos and 2009, just carry that thought up to your CURRENT post, which is Friday, January 2! I have a newly reloaded computer, and it is FAST. It fairly flys when I hit the scroll button. It seems there will be a learning curve here!
