Happy Holidays

This is my "Christmas Card" to all of my wonderful friends here on Blogland!.. a little oil painting from a few of my ornaments on my tree.   I wasn't going to put up a Christmas tree this year because I felt guilty that my neighborhood is so dark and will be for a long time because of Hurricane Sandy.  Last year this time, everyone had beautiful lights outside for the Holidays...this year....so much darkness and sadness all around me...but I want to believe that by displaying some lights, it will brighten their day and give them hope.   I want to thank you all for all your support this year and look forward to seeing your work in 2013.  I have learned so much from all of you!!!  Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to you all !!!

  3. Dear Hilda, life is always a strange mix of health and disease, joys and sorrows.
    It never happen , to me, to be completely in the light, although in my mind I try to avoid the darkness, sadness and fear for what could happen bad.
    I try to be optimistic and hopeful, to save every day moments of joy.
    I wish for me and for all,the sense of rebirth connected to Christmas and the New Year, could heal hearts, wounded from any loss. Merry Christmas,dear Hilda!Thank you for your warm friendship, Rita.

  51. Love the painting, Hilda! The lights are a good idea.

    This is from 1 John 1:7 If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
