God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

He Keeps A-Knockin' But He Can't Come In

First of all, I want to thank all of you who left such kind comments on my post yesterday regarding your concern for my health & offering your prayers.  I am not feeling up to answering everyone individually & hope you will understand me not being able to do so.  This illness, whatever it is, really hangs on!  I usually toss off a cold or the flu pretty quickly, but not this time.  I read blogs while making cups of tea but haven't felt up to commenting on any.  Again I hope you will understand.  As of this morning I am, I think, feeling a tad better.  I managed to do a bit of stitching yesterday but mostly I slept a lot.  Sleeping is probably a good thing to do.

Thank you again for your prayers & concern.  I really appreciate them.

Glad to hear you are feeling a wee bit better! Sleep and fluids are good for you. They say this year's virus takes a while to kick to the curb.

Thinking of you!

If you do pop over to my blog you will see a little something familiar. See if you can spot the personalisation I have done!

This must be the same cold my sister came down with at Christmas, Shirlee--two weeks later and she is still sick... Please be extra careful and don't overdo it! Hope to read you're feeling better very soon.

Bless your heart, Shirlee! Be sure you go to the doctor if you aren't feeling better soon. My daughter had the creeping crud when I sent her back to college and she ended up at Urgent Care with bronchitis and a sinus infection. : ( Feel better!!!!!
