Mosaic Monday In and out of the house and Jingle Poetry

aMosaic Monday
Before Christmas
Double click to bypass sidebar buttons


Outside the icicles are dripping
Inside the lights are flipping
It looks like Christmas
Well it must be 



At noon today the ice was melting but it will refreeze again. 
I love the picture of the berries in ice.









Finally got out to get some for decorating.
Had to spread them out in the garage til all the water drained off, but they are beautiful. 





The reason for the season.



Can't beat holly and berries for decorating.



Well need to go out for some more tomorrow to add to this mirror.

Hooking up with
Jingle Poetry

Merry Christmas
               May we all be kind and compassionate
               Even when it hurts to do so.
               Rare it will be to whine.
               Rare it will be to groan.
               Yes, lets all get along.

                Christ showed us all how.
                How could he endure all that pain and suffering?
                Rascals and rogues all around.
                It was his entire life to love.
                So many would not listen, even us, at times.
                Time is now to turn it around.
                May He be pleased with us
                As we try to make amends in this
                Season of joy and love.

What a lovely post - I like the berries with the icicles on. I saw icicles last Tuesday, but it's been pretty warm after that. I've had my windows and doors open for the past few days! I sure hope there will be more cold weather in store. I wait for this all year long.

Your house is decorated very festive and I love your Nativity. Have a lovely Christmas and all the best for a healthy New Year!

Love the blue bottles in your window. Ever read the book The Blue Bottle Club..like that book.

The ice sure is pretty dripping off that berried bush.

Hope you have a very Merry and Peaceful Christmas.
