Light of the World

Have you seen the waterless snow globes people have been creating?
I didn't have a large jar, so I used a glass cloche.
I was trying to think of something to put in the bottom to look like snow, and finally settled on antique mother of pearl buttons - I have lots of those :)
"Here comes the letdown Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here"
The Christmas decorations are put away and I am enjoying my winter decorations ~ antique sleigh bells, ice skates and lanterns.
"So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing"
This is busy season for accountants like me ~ closing the books for the auditors and tax accountants to do their thing. I've been working 60 - 70 hours a week. Doesn't leave much time for anything else but sleep. Whenever I can I put in one or two stitches before my eyes close involuntarily.
"Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here"
~ "Day after Christmas" by Matthew West
A really beautiful song. My favorite right now.
If you have a chance, please listen to it.
You won't be disappointed.
Blessings, Patti
p.s. For the many that have asked about the Dove of Peace mat found here, it is actually called "Tidings of Peace" by Maggie Bonanomi and can be found in "Holly Threads" by Need'l Love.
