We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
William Gladstone (1809-1898)

Global Observance of Peace
Before heading off to bed tonight, I decided to take the opportunity to catch up on some blog reading. I started off with Mrs. Staggs' A Happy Miscellany , always a pleasant interlude to my day. There I read of the What if For Just One Day . . . blog and was immediately compelled to write my own post in support of the effort to observe two minutes of silence on 12/30 in recognition of the desperate need for peace in our world. So, please take two minutes tonight and silently consider the need for peace, tolerance and understanding among us all. It's a small step for each of us individually, but collectively what amazing possibilities lie before us!

Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.
Buddha (560-483 B.C.)

Inexcusable Absence

Well, it's been a while since I posted and I'm afraid I have no acceptable reason to explain my absence. If I were Anne of Anne of Green Gables, I might be able to come up with a somewhat implausible, but highly entertaining, reason why I haven't. As you might have guessed though, I am not Anne so it will have to remain a mystery as to why I have not posted. (*hint - It might have just a little, tiny bit to do with laziness)

While I absolutely love the wonderful homemaking and craft blogs out there, and I do mean love, there are times when I feel like I have a bit more in common with the women in an Anne Taintor image than I do with Martha Stewart. So, I will leave you with a couple of images that are truly speaking to me during this festive, holiday season while I try and think of a decent blog entry to post next.
