Merry Christmas to All!

“Merry Christmas to All” by Joan Y. Edwards

Merry Christmas to each of you. May God bless you and fill you with joy, peace, good health, and prosperity!

One day when I went to recycle boxes at a friend’s UPS store, he asked me how my Mother was doing. I told him that she wasn’t doing well. He said, “I will ask my God to bless her.”

That made me feel so special. So if you don’t believe in the same God, or believe the same religious beliefs as me, I want you to know that I wish good things for you. If there’s a good wish, you would like to hear, I hope you will interpret that I’m saying it in my words, “I wish all good things for you. Merry Christmas!

Here are songs I believe you will enjoy!

“Our Father” sung to comfort and bring healing to the people of Galacia, Spain after the train wreck in 2012.

The First Noel by Celtic Woman 

“Mary, Did You Know” sung by Clay Aiken

“Child of Peace” sung by Sandy Patty, lyrics by Lyn Hopkins

Thank you for reading my blog and leaving comments. You lift my spirits and give me joy.

If you have writing, illustrating, or never giving up topics that you would like for me to research and write about, please let me know in the comment area or email me at joanyedwards1@gmail.com!

In January, I plan to do a post every other day on “Why Not?” I may change the title but the meaning will be the same –  to encourage each of us to take that first step towards something we want to do or have been afraid to do.
