My Annual Christmas Eve Post

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine;
Christmas where snow peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where corn fields lie sunny and bright;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in its flight,
Broods o’er brave men in the thick of the fight;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

For the Christ child who comes is the Master of all
No place too great and no cottage too small;
The Angels who welcome Him sing from the height,
“In the city of David, a King in His might.”
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

Then let every heart keep its Christmas within
Christ’s pity for sorrow, Christ’s hatred for sin.
Christ’s care for the weakest, Christ’s courage for right,
Christ’s dread of the darkness, Christ’s love of the light.
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

So the stars of the midnight which compass us round
Shall see a strange glory, and hear a sweet sound,
And cry, “Look! The earth is aflame with delight,
O Sons of the morning, rejoice at the sight.”
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

Words: Bishop Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)

Sad Announcement

Much to my dismay and facing the truth, I am closing down my Blueladie Designs website.  The new taxation on internet sales has forced me into this decision.  I just cannot cope with governmental rules and regulations.  I am sad because I enjoy doing this.  I will continue to make my little charts as I am able and give them away in our KYKS group.  I started that group on Yahoo in 2002 because a group I belonged to decided to close and gave its members no choice but to do without.  I do truly do this “for the love of creativity” as my banner states.  More and more things are changing beyond my control and beyond my capabilities to endure.  If you like my designs, you can have them for free in our group:  KYKS during the month they are released.  You have to join.  No approval required.  If Iris (my co-owner) or my signature are not on a note, we did not send it (website hosts send reminder of non-participation, not us).  Thank you for your support over the years.
