. . . snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow . . .
Such a beautiful card I received from our dear friend Dorthe! She has reached out to me and is a blessing much farther than she could know~ I was amazed at her creativity. Just look at all the details; from the scrunched and inked background paper, to the snow and beautifully inked stencil design. And the deer! Oh my~
And also she could not have known this was one of my very favorite Christmas/Winter songs. I've included all the words for you to read. But if you would take the time to listen to this vintage song, I know it will bless your heart!
|words- Christina Rossetti music- Gustav Holst|
|In the bleak midwinter, frosty winds may moan|
|Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone|
|Snow had fallen, snow on snow|
|Snow on snow|
|In the bleak midwinter, long --- ago|
|Our God, heaven cannot hold Him,|
|nor earth sustain|
|Heaven and earth shall flee away|
|when He comes to reign|
|In the bleak midwinter, a stable place sufficed|
|The Lord God Almighty --- J e s u s C h r i s t|
|What can I give Him, poor as I am?|
|If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb|
|If I were a wise man, I would do my part|
|Yet what I can, I give Him - give my heart|
I hope all of you are finding some time for peace and rest during this busy season!
Blessings and thank you SO VERY MUCH for stopping in~ Karen
