ABC Wednesday...V is for.....

A VERY Merry Christmas from our VILLAGE!

These Geese belong to one of my neighbours and as I delivered my christmas cards a couple of years ago I captured the moment!

A wonderful scene depicting the spirit of Christmas!

The Spirit of Christmas

Author Unknown

I have a list of people I know
All written in a book
And every year at Christmastime
I go and take a look
And that is when I realise
That those names are a part
Not of the book they're written in
But of my very heart

For each name stands for someone
Who has crossed my path some time
And in that meeting they've become
A treasured friend of mine
And once you've met some people
The years can not erase
The memory of a pleasant word
Or a friendly face

So when I send a Christmas card
That is addressed to you
It's because you're on that list
Of folk I'm indebted to
And you are one of many folk who
In times past I've met
And happen to be one of those
I don't want to forget

And whether I have known you for
Many years or few
In some way you have a part in
Shaping things I do
This, the spirit of Christmas, that
Forever and ever endures
May it leave it richest blessing
In the hearts of you and yours.


  1. Very nice indeed! I hope the geese survived the festivities :-)

    Your post reminds me that I must write my Christmas cards - I have made them.

  2. Somebody with whom I mostly only exchange cards sent me a copy of that poem in June with a long letter (he doesn't have internet) and I finally got round to replying a few days ago.

  3. My freind has geese, I have to text from the end of her drive for her to shut them in as they attack me and frighten me to death!

  4. Thanks and a Merry Christmas to you too. I love your Village. It looks just like a Christmas card.
