Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

My daughter just phoned to chat a bit about Christmas preparations. She lives on the east coast and we're on the west coast, and later today Wyatt is going to get Skype going so we can have a proper "visit". But I have got to show you what she sent for our granddaughter's gift!

Those of you who follow the blog know that Benita loves our pomeranians dearly. My daughter found her a life-size stuffed Pomeranian made by the company "Melissa and Doug" (www.MelissaAndDoug.com) and she shipped it out for us to present to Benita this evening. It will be so interesting to see her reactions first Christmas. Well, the first since she was an infant.

Benita, with a dog brush in each hand, attempts to groom a less-than-enthusiastic Peppy.
Benita has a very nice aunt!
