Love at Christmas

This time of year makes me think of Love. The love the Lord had for us so he sent his only son to become man and come to this earth and bear the sins of the World. The love I have for my husband and all he does for my family. The love for my children so that I want to make sure they never hurt and need anything. The love for my siblings and family members that when I am in need of conversation, a shoulder to cry on or just a laugh, they are there.

I came across this book at a white elephant sale at a craft fair. It's all about love. The deep unmoving, tragic, heart breaking, soul filling kind of love that seems so rare these days. It's a great book with love letters from the sender in little envelopes on pages of great lovers of our time.."The Brownings", Henry viii and Ann Boelyn, George Sands.. and many more.

Gorgeous post Tracey ~ the photos are beautiful, and such meaning in your words. I too have a love so deep for my children, I want them to NEVER ever hurt, or want for anything that is a need. I wish everything around me to be in happiness. I am a mother first and foremost, then comes the rest, leading the way with God. Such a lovely book you found! Have a wonderful week, xoxo Sherri
